Keep Massachusetts Beautiful
We're taking action to make Massachusetts communities cleaner, greener, litter-free places to live, work, and play.
We focus on four impact areas in order to improve local communities:
- Litter Prevention & Cleanup: Understand who and what is causing litter and mobilize volunteer and government resources to clean it up and prevent future littering behavior.
- Waste Reduction & Recycling: Reduce reliance on single-use plastics and other non-sustainable products. Promote reuse and repair and effective recycling programs to reduce the volume of trash that ends up in landfills, incinerators, or as litter.
- Beautification & Community Greening: Beautify public spaces through landscaping projects, tree plantings, pollinator-friendly plantings, and other infrastructure improvements.
- Environmental Education: Educate people of all ages on ways they can change their behaviors to better protect our environment and inspire the next generation of environmental scientists, advocates, and leaders.
