Keep America Beautiful in the Blackstone Valley
We are an official Keep America Beautiful affiliate and are implementing its goals and principles into the Blackstone Valley by working with cities and towns to understand their specific needs and to create programs that will enhance their landscapes. Litter prevention, beautification, and waste reduction are just a few of the goals and tools we are exploring in our partnership. By expanding a community’s networking opportunities, educational materials, and our ability to work with each community as partners, we are able to address their individual needs and help set their goals and the measurement of their efforts.
