Perhaps the best thing about March is the welcoming of spring. As the seasons change and flowers begin to bloom, we turn our attention toward nature and enjoying the outdoors. This March, I'd like to encourage you to go a step further and participate in the Great America Cleanup — the nation's largest community improvement program committed to protecting the environment, reducing waste, and keeping America beautiful.
Environmental Stewardship: Doing Your Part
No matter where you live, we all should do our part to keep our communities clean and green. This includes activities such as:
Even just a few hours of volunteering can make a big difference in helping to protect the environment and beautify your community. What's more, community cleanups help boost home values, reduce crime, and improve public health. Help Keep America Beautiful The Great American Cleanup kicks off on March 20, the first day of spring. To participate in a cleanup, find an affiliate program near you. Can't find an affiliate program or organization? Talk to your employer or local government about sponsoring a cleanup event. You can even take a cleanup to your neighborhood by organizing a "Clean Your Block Party" event. Join the conversation online using #cleanYOURblock, and learn more by visiting kab.org. Together, we can create a better, cleaner place for our families, friends, and neighbors to live. Let's get to work!
