“Never doubt that a small group of concerned citizens can change the world; indeed it is the only thing that ever has. — Margaret Mead

Keep Ohio Beautiful encourages public-private partnerships and the connections that strengthen our communities, protect our land and water, and improve our quality of life.

Ours is not an isolated mission. It requires diverse partnerships with all community stakeholders. Working together — businesses, government, neighborhoods, individuals and other nonprofit teams — we can be successful in improving our communities.


Whether supporting local community initiatives, or national programs like the Great American Cleanup — the business community is an integral part of the partnership that nourishes KAB.


Government at the local, state and federal level is a critical component of any successful effort to improve quality of life in America’s communities. KAB’s nonpartisan approach to engaging elected officials and government agencies ensures participation and success.


KAB’s curricula teach the fundamentals of litter prevention, preserving our resources, responsible solid waste management, and how to reduce, reuse and recycle.


Nonprofit Organizations
We encourage other organizations to join with us so that the results we are achieving can be multiplied from community to community across the country.


A city in which business, civic and community leaders have joined with residents to improve the look and the feel of their neighborhoods succeeds in sustaining those improvements. Get involved in your neighborhood and make it a cleaner, more beautiful place to live.
