Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Having a beautiful community is important for so many reasons, namely the mental, physical, and economic well-being of its residents. Beauty to us is defined as less litter and more green spaces and one generally leads to another. Studies done by Keep America Beautiful have shown that a green space that has been purposely enhanced is less likely to attract litter. By removing litter, we are encouraging a social norm. Littered areas generally attract more litter because people may think littering is an acceptable behavior, and so non-littered areas will hopefully do the same.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Keep Pensacola Beautiful's vision is for every community within our county to be clean, green and a beautiful place to live. We want to be environmental stewards and strive to make our environment more beautiful, pristine and eco friendly. We will achieve this through inspiring and educating people to take action everyday to improve and beautify their community environment. To accomplish this, we will provide educational opportunities to schools, business and organizations, conduct clean-up activities with these same groups and develop and manage beautification and environmental projects and get our citizens engaged to help.

To achieve our mission our organization is looking to:
1. Create a strong organizational infrastructure while maintaining and strengthening partnerships and alignment with community and government organizations to achieve a shared mission.

2. Build a diverse and sustainable revenue stream to maintain financial independence in order to reduce risk and all us to achieve greater flexibility and efficiency of resources.

3. Craft an effective communications strategy to clearly define our brand identity and build Keep Pensacola Beautiful's brand equity.

4. Grow Pensacola's and Escambia County's future by increasing our volunteers, business partners, foundations and organizations and develop and implement measures that are value added.

Keep Pensacola Beautiful is well-positioned by having the equipment, knowledge, and engaged staff that can execute its mission. We possess the tools, equipment, and field experience to tackle any major project. Our organization is also well positioned through strategic partnership's with agencies that can assist as needed. The Board is diverse and engaged and is keen on helping us achieve great success.

Keep Pensacola Beautiful assists the county in removing large amounts of waste from public spaces and roadways as well as residential areas. We provide the community with resources for recycling, and provide educational opportunities for kids of all ages. Our Community Service Work Program provides Escambia County residents with the opportunity to work off hours and fines while giving back to the community. We support hundreds of volunteers each year who assist with the Great American Cleanup and we have 25 active Adopt-A-Spot volunteer groups. We have implemented an event cleanup service called The Clean Team that provides sanitation services to events and festivals. If we do it, we know it's being done right.

2019 is our 40th anniversary. We have a big year planned that includes installing Harmony Park equipment in a local park, planting 40 trees for 40 years, rolling out our Waste-In-Place K-6 educational curriculum and partnering with public schools and Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, as well as large scale events such as an awards ceremony to recognize our volunteers, a trash-art show, and several fundraising events!
