We Keep America Beautiful so Americans can do beautiful things
Thriving communities. Safer neighborhoods. New businesses. We don’t clean up communities just to keep America beautiful. We clean up so Americans can do beautiful things.
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.
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.
Everything we do is powered by millions of volunteers who support our programs and mission.
