Our Impact

Iowa is beautiful.

We are working to keep it that way.


Today’s litter is tomorrow’s problem.

Everyday items can take hundreds, thousands, or even millions of years to decompose:


Plastic Bag
500-1000 years

Aluminum can

Glass bottle
1-2 million years


That is why Keep Iowa Beautiful is committed to reducing litter and waste, educating the public on environmental and sustainability issues, and working to improve the beauty and vitality of our state.
