“Brightside is dedicated to uniting people in clean and green activities that beautify and foster pride in our community through volunteerism, planting, sustainability, & education”

  Focusing on sustainability through beautification, Brightside engages the community in many ways. Through our community-wide clean-ups, Brightside has coordinated thousands of volunteers to help remove litter though our city. In spring 2013 alone, our clean-ups removed over 16 tons of garbage from Louisville’s streets and parks! That is equivalent to the total amount of trash produced by 22 Americans for one entire year.

Brightside also promotes sustainability through our long-standing education programs that spread our mission to future generations and prepare today for a brighter tomorrow.

Brightside believes that a clean and green city promotes a high quality of life and is deserved by all citizens.
