What if every full-time employee volunteered one week of every year?

I have for years now felt that just 1 week of our time per year could evoke huge change, not only our countries landscape and start to heal us BUT how about opening our eyes to see the wonderful reward one would feel by making that the norm a part of our year/years?! AND what if the government gave a nice tax advantage to the companies that particied in such a concept....

    Mar 26 2013: In Vermont we have "Green-Up Day" each spring where people are asked to pick up trash and debris along the roadside. It has been so successful that it continues to expand each year.
    "Green Up's mission is to promote the stewardship of our state's natural landscape and waterways and the livability of our communities by involving people in Green Up Day and raising public awareness about the benefits of a litter-free environment."
    Everyone gets involved in someway.
