What is Keep America Beautiful’s formula for success? Since 1953, the organization has provided a replicable framework for community education and hands-on stewardship that reduces litter and encourages recycling, promotes grassroots volunteerism and makes sustainable improvement possible for communities of all sizes. 

Affiliates, like Keep Liberty Beautiful, have built upon Keep America Beautiful’s Behavior Change System to create innovative, locally–focused programs that address the specific needs of diverse geographies and populations. Using the fundamentals of their time-tested approach, affiliates are reaching deep into their communities to effect meaningful, positive change.

Keep America Beautiful, the nation’s iconic community improvement nonprofit organization, inspires and educates people to take action every day to improve and beautify their community environment. Established in 1953, we, as an affiliate, strive to End Littering, Improve Recycling and Beautify America’s Communities. We believe everyone has a right to live in a clean, green and beautiful community, and shares a responsibility to contribute to that vision. Behavior change – steeped in education, research and behavioral science – is the cornerstone of Keep America Beautiful. 

We empower generations of community and environmental stewards with volunteer programs, hands-on experiences, educational curricula, practical advice and other resources. The organization is driven by more than 600 state and local affiliates, millions of volunteers, and the support of corporate partners, social and civic service organizations, academia, municipalities and government officials.

Creating a country where every community is a clean, green and beautiful place to live starts with people taking individual responsibility and collective action. Keep America Beautiful extends the reach of our initiatives and multiplies the impact of our actions through partnerships with an array of organizations.

Developing public-private-civic partnerships has been a common thread throughout our history and is an essential ingredient of our heritage. Keep America Beautiful gratefully acknowledges the corporations, nonprofits, educational organizations, associations, government agencies and others whose financial support, sponsorships, employee engagement and in-kind contributions significantly advance our mission and make our work possible.
