What We Do


Taking action to make Massachusetts a cleaner, greener place to live, work, and play

We inspire and educate people to take action every day to improve and beautify their community environment.

We teach local volunteers how to collaborate with government and business leaders to achieve significant and lasting community improvements. We focus on four core impact areas in order to improve local communities:

  • Litter Prevention & Cleanup: Understand who and what is causing litter and organize volunteer and government resources to clean it up and prevent future littering behavior.
  • ​​​​​​Waste Reduction & Recycling: Reduce reliance on single-use plastic and promote effective recycling programs to reduce the volume of trash that ends up in landfills, incinerators, or as litter.
  • Beautification & Community Greening: Beautify public spaces with landscaping projects, tree planting, and other infrastructure improvements to build community pride and spur local economic activity.
  • Environmental Education: Provide environmental education opportunities to inspire the next generation of environmental scientists, advocates, and leaders.
