Sustainability is not just about sustaining life and the natural environment. It is also about economic vitality and healthier communities.

Environmental sustainability focuses on avoiding the depletion of natural resources to maintain an ecological balance. The three scientific principles of sustainability are:
Developing ways to depend on renewable energy sources
Protecting the variety and variability of living things
Protecting chemical cycling processes, such as the earth’s carbon cycle, water cycle, and other natural processes that make life and its biodiversity possible.

Plastic, glass, paper, and other solid waste pollution disrupts these natural processes and in turn, damages the earth’s biosphere and life forms dependent on it.

Keep Little Rock Beautiful works in partnership with  Little Rock Sustainability, Little Rock Solid Waste, Little Rock Recycles, commercial waste haulers, and members of the community to find ways to expand recycling, and we continue to advocate for more effective recycling programs and policies in Little Rock and the State. It is part of what we do through our commitment to a cleaner, healthier environment and improved quality of life for present and future Little Rock residents and visitors.

Our business recycling program in the River Market District was instrumental in promoting recycling of cardboard and glass in the area. School Recycling programs are another one of our ongoing programs with selected Little Rock schools and remains a primary focus. Recycling grants assist local elementary schools in their effort to inform, encourage, and increase recycling at school and in their communities.
