Join Keep America Beautiful in its Fight to End Littering!
Keep America Beautiful is a leading national nonprofit whose mission is to inspire and educate people to take action every day to improve and beauty their community environment. For more than six decades, Keep America Beautiful has served as our country’s nonprofit steward of litter prevention.
Over 51 billion pieces of litter appear on U.S. roadways each year. Litter has environmental consequences. Wind and weather, traffic, and animals move litter into gutters, lawns and landscaped areas, alleyways, and parking structures. Litter near storm drains and beach debris are also likely to wash into local waterways, with potential for serious environmental contamination.
Help Stop Littering! It starts with you…
- Choose not to litter. Make the commitment now and take the “Be Recycled” pledge with thousands of other Americans.
- Remind others not to litter and why.
- If you’re a smoker, carry and use a portable or pocket ashtray.
- If you see litter, pick it up.
- Volunteer to help prevent and cleanup litter.
Participate in Keep America Beautiful’s exciting programs this Fall. Registration opens Monday, August 1 for Recycle-Bowl and America Recycles Day. The theme for America Recycles Day this year is “Be Recycled.”
