Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful Receives Grant from Keep America Beautiful to Continue Cigarette Litter Prevention Program

(5/21/19) – Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful (KPB) received a $10,000 grant from Keep America Beautiful to continue their work with the Keep America Beautiful Cigarette Litter Prevention Program (CLPP), the nation’s largest program aimed at reducing cigarette litter. This is the ninth year that KPB received funding from the national organization.
Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful will partner with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) focusing on Pennsylvania State Parks with recreational lakes and tributaries to the Delaware River and Bay. The parks included in the 2019 CLPP grant are Benjamin Rush, Nockamixion, Ridley Creek and Tyler State Parks. To combat against litter, the program advocates that participating communities use four approaches: encourage enforcement of litter laws, including cigarette litter; raise awareness about the issue; place ash receptacles in places like entrances to public buildings; and distribute portable ashtrays to smokers.
