KEEP ARKANSAS BEAUTIFUL

The Keep Arkansas Beautiful Commission inspires and educates individuals to improve their communities by preventing litter, promoting recycling and keeping Arkansas beautiful. We encourage everyone to accept responsibility for maintaining Arkansas’s scenic beauty, environmental health and quality of life. These efforts positively impact civic pride, livability and economic growth – creating communities where people want to work, live and play.

The Keep Arkansas Beautiful Commission is a division of the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism and is one of four state agencies that share proceeds from the Amendment 75 1/8-cent Conservation Tax. Our 1 percent of the 1/8-cent tax provides an annual budget of about $700,000. The commission consists of nine governor’s appointees; the executive director and a two-person staff manage our operations.

Keep Arkansas Beautiful is a certified state affiliate of Keep America Beautiful Inc., the nation’s foremost organization that improves and beautifies community environments. We adhere to the principles of the national organization and promote and direct its programs in Arkansas. We also recruit local communities to join the Keep America Beautiful network as certified local affiliates. Currently, 12 communities in Arkansas are certified local affiliates.

NASA' CLIMATE KIDS 

Nasa's Eyes on the Earth

Climate Kids is produced by the Earth Science Communications Team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory / California Institute of Technology.

Yes, we care! After all, Earth is our spaceship.

It carries us on a 583-million-mile cruise around the Sun every year. It even has its own "force field." Earth has a magnetic field that protects us from killer radiation and brutal solar wind. For its life-support system, Earth has all the air, water, and food we need.

Just like astronauts on a long space voyage, we need to monitor all our "ship's" vital functions and keep our Earth "ship shape."

SOCIAL PLASTIC ORG

Join the Movement:

A "Revealer" acts to alleviate extreme poverty, ocean plastic, and the production of new plastic by revealing the value in Social Plastic®.

David Katz:

We make plastic waste a currency to help the world’s most disadvantaged people. I’ve come to realize that the problem with plastic waste, is that people see it as waste. But if we can reveal the value in plastic, we can make it too valuable to throw away. If we can reveal value in people, we can unleash the potential of the world’s most disadvantaged and give them a platform to improve their lives. That’s my vision. It’s a triple bottom line social enterprise. We reveal value in plastic and it will have a domino effect on the world. What do you think?”
