Beautification Committee partners with city and state agencies, civic groups, business and property owners, neighborhood associations, garden clubs, local artists, and arts organizations to visually beautify local communities. We share the goal to continually work toward improved quality of life and economic growth in Little Rock.

Recycling & Sustainability Committee encourages and promotes recycling efforts among citizens, schools and businesses through partnerships with commercial enterprises and the city government, as well as through recycling events and education about environmental and economic sustainability.

Litter Prevention Committee is responsible for a number of projects each aimed to promote Little Rock as a litter free city: Annual City Wide Cleanup, the Great Arkansas Cleanup, and the Annual Litter Survey/Index are yearly events and activities that we hold with support from affiliates. The Litter Prevention Committee also works closely with the City of Little Rock on its Adopt-A-Street Program.

Public Awareness Committee The more we know, the more effective we are at making positive changes in our and other peoples’ lives. We work to increase public awareness of the effects of litter and pollution on our environment and how that affects our economy and personal health. We share information on not only the problem but how each of us are part of the solution.
