(April 11, 2019) Earth Day, April 22, is quickly approaching and Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful invites all educators to check out the Litter Free School Zone program. This comprehensive program encourages young people to take an active role in protecting and improving the environment through recycling, litter awareness and community stewardship. Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful will provide a sign to each school that participates in the program. As part of the program, the school commits to organizing two cleanups or beautification events per year. There are currently over eighty schools participating in the program. All schools are welcome to participate, whether you are an elementary school, middle school, high school, or public / private school.
