Keiko's #ReconsiderLitter Fundraiser
WILL YOU HELP US #RECONSIDERLITTER?
At the Keep Georgia Beautiful Foundation (KGBF), we believe everyone deserves to live in a clean, green, and beautiful environment, and ending litter is an essential component of our mission. Litter impacts our quality of life, destroying our state’s natural beauty, harming or killing wildlife, and diminishing water quality. It also hinders economic development—property values decrease in littered neighborhoods, whereas clean communities attract families and businesses.
In 2019, our network of affiliates and volunteers collected 2 million pounds of litter and debris, and cleaned and improved 30, 795 miles of parks, public lands, playgrounds, and trails. Now, we're leading a united effort to eradicate blight across the state through our #reconsiderlitter campaign. In this challenging year, our efforts are more important than ever because of an increase in discarded PPE items like masks and gloves.
Of course, we've adapted. Our network has hosted family cleanups and drive-through events. They've created litter kits for individuals to check out from their local libraries, and installed sanitizer stations so volunteers can remain safe and healthy while supporting our cause.
We need your support to continue this vital work. Every $1 that you give will enable our network to collect over 7 pounds of trash across the state. Please donate, and spread the word by sharing this page with your family, friends, and social networks. Thank you for supporting our campaign.

MORE ABOUT OUR #RECONSIDERLITTER CAMPAIGN
In January, we unveiled a statewide public service campaign at the Georgia State Capitol. Our customizable campaign slogan, “Consider _______ before you litter”, and hashtag, #reconsiderlitter, ask the public to contemplate the negative effects of litter on our economy, health, and environment, as well as join the fight to reverse them.
