Here is a way that you can give a gift that helps to protect the environment and give your license plate a makeover. By purchasing an environment theme license plate as a holiday gift this year, you join over 40,000 other drivers who help raise nearly $1 million for environmental projects annually.
Did you know that Massachusetts drivers have given more than $17 Million to support environmental programs in the state since 1995? Proceeds from these license plates allow the Massachusetts Environmental Trust to make grants to nonprofit organizations and municipalities all over the Commonwealth. Grants from the Massachusetts Environmental Trust have been used to: find sources of pollution, restore marine and freshwater habitat, protect endangered species, monitor water quality throughout the state, educate students on environmental issues, and much more.
Environmental license plates are available at any Registry of Motor Vehicles branch or online.
- The initial registration fee for your new plate is $50.
- The special plate fee is $40 ($28 is tax-deductible; $12 is to manufacture the plate).
- Total first time cost of your specialty plates is $90.
- Renewal fee is $90 every 2 years ($40 is tax-deductible).
