Education Outreach

Recycling Assembly

Education is one of Keep Phoenix Beautiful's main pillars of engagement. This pillar is enforced by the organization's FREE education program. KPB's education team visit schools, businesses, neighborhood associations, and many other groups around the Phoenix area to teach all things sustainability. For over a decade the education program has grown to consist of  various in-person and virtual presentations and modules. The resources offered cover several topics including recycling, water conservation, littering, gardening, composting, community beautification, and overall sustainability.
