Making St. Louis a cleaner, greener, better place to live! Brightside St. Louis is the region’s oldest and most comprehensive not-for-profit cleaning and greening group. They enrich and beautify St. Louis by restoring, maintaining and growing the community landscape. They make neighborhoods more livable, downtown more vibrant, the region more sustainable. Their mission is to improve the quality of life in the community by educating, engaging and inspiring people to make the region cleaner, greener and more environmentally sustainable. From Blitz to graffiti removal, Brightside works hard to make St. Louis a cleaner place to live. Cleaner neighborhoods make people feel safer. Mirroring their dedication to cleaning St. Louis, Brightside has the same devotion to making St. Louis a greener, more beautiful place to live.
