Notice something different in front of ECHO? It's not Jurassic Park... it's Greenosaurus!

The seemingly friendly creature arrived at ECHO from the Statehouse lawn in Montpelier. Green Up Vermont teamed up with Dutch artist Maria Koijck to construct a 12-foot-tall dinosaur made entirely of plastic bottles just before Green Up Day. This project is meant to call attention to the issue of plastic bottles in the environment.

The project was started on May 2, Green Up's 45th anniversary. Local students helped attach the water bottles to the dinosaur at the statehouse. By involving the community, Greenosaurus was able to raise awareness about the dangers of not recycling plastic bottles and littering.

Stop by ECHO and say hi to Greenosaurus!
