    MONTPELIER — Gov. Peter Shumlin has declared today “Button Up” day in Vermont.

    It’s meant to help Vermonters take actions that will lower their energy bills this winter and reduce their contribution to climate change, according to a news release.

    Modeled after Vermont’s successful Green Up Day, this event will be the first grass-roots day of action on weatherization in Vermont. The day, which is being spearheaded by the Vermont Energy and Climate Action Network, is aimed at mobilizing as many volunteers as possible throughout the state to take steps — large and small — to help Vermonters stop wasting energy and become more energy independent.

    “Every year, many Vermont homeowners waste hard-earned dollars because their homes are inefficient and leaky,” said network coordinator Johanna Miller in the release.

    “Button Up Vermont Day of Action is intended to be a fun, collaborative, community-driven effort to arm more people with the information, incentives and path they need to stop wasting energy and start saving money.”

    More than 30 communities have signed up to participate, including Barre, Montpelier and Randolph.
