  3. Our Mission

    Keep Bermuda Beautiful’s Mission is to engage individuals to take greater responsibility in reducing waste and eliminating litter through education and action. As a recognized local leader in community improvement, KBB is guided by these principles:  Education: This is the key to encouraging positive behaviors toward community improvement. Individual Responsibility: Improving communities, their environment, and quality of life all begins with personal responsibility -- individuals becoming more engaged as citizens and stewards of the environment.  Community Partnerships: Broad-based community alliances with public and private organizations are essential to achieve sustainable community improvement.  Volunteer Action: By engaging volunteers we extend the reach of our education and multiply the impact of our actions. KBB endeavours to change behaviour and improve the community through a focus on:  Litter Prevention: Identifying the causes of litter and reducing it through educational programmes, organised cleanups, and promoting correct waste disposal.  Waste Reduction and Recycling: Reducing the impact of waste in our communities by supporting existing public and private programmes including reduction and reuse, recycling and education about waste-to-energy, and composting.  Beautification: Improving the visual aspects of our communities through collaborative projects of community greening and graffiti prevention.
