We stand in solidarity with those peacefully demanding what is beautiful

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Keep America Beautiful stands in solidarity with people of color against racism and violence.  We believe a beautiful America is made up of proud communities with unique and interconnected people – and that diversity, inclusion, compassion, caring, and equality are tenets of a better society for everyone.

Our Goals

We believe in the shared American responsibility to build and maintain clean, green, and beautiful spaces. That’s why we take action every day to improve and beautify communities across America.

End Littering

For more than six decades, we’ve served as our country’s steward of litter prevention. Today, we’ve collected over 62 million pounds of litter and debris.

Improve Recycling

We’ve collected 262 million pounds of recyclables which in turn reaped greater environmental, economic, and community benefits.

Beautify Communities

We work with millions of volunteers on beautification and greening programs that impact more than 20,000 communities annually.

Get Involved

Keep America Beautiful envisions a country in which every community is a clean, green, and beautiful place to live. This is why we do what we do, and why we invite committed people like you to participate in our activities and support our programs. We all benefit from living in cleaner, more beautiful places.
