We need your help

Keep Florida Beautiful’s (KFB) vision is to create a Florida where every community is a clean, green and beautiful place to live. KFB is committed to this vision and strives to make a difference by encouraging people to take the “ I Promise” pledge to end littering, increase recycling and lessen their impact in their community. Lead by example and join us by taking the pledge and inspiring others to take action every day to improve and beautify our community environments.

Take the “I Promise” pledge

I promise to Keep Florida Beautiful by:

  • Recycling more and encouraging others in my community to do the same.
  • Keeping my community litter-free by putting recyclables and trash in the right place when I see it and encouraging others to do the same.
  • Reducing the amount of waste I produce.

 

Learn how to Keep Florida Beautiful

Whether you’ve already made your pledge or are still deciding, these tips will help you follow through with your commitment to help make Florida a clean, green and beautiful place to live.

Recycle More

Recycle items rather than sending them to the landfill. Remember to stick to the basics by recycling aluminum and steel cans, plastic bottles and jugs, paper, and cardboard. Other items such as plastic bags and greasy boxes may not be recyclable and can interfere with recycling equipment.

Prevent Litter

Plain and simple, litter is a piece of waste that has been thrown away without consent and at inappropriate locations. Approximately 85% of littering behavior is the result of individual attitudes.

Reduce Waste

The average person in America generates over 4 pounds of trash every day which equals approximately 1.5 tons of solid waste per year. Despite our best efforts to recycle, we still generate too much waste which all too often ends up in landfills.
