Making St. Louis a cleaner, greener, better place to live!

Dedicated to cleaning, greening St. Louis since 1982

At Brightside St. Louis, our mission is to improve the quality of life in our community by educating, engaging and inspiring St. Louisans to make our region cleaner, greener and more environmentally sustainable.

From graffiti removal to our sustainable Demonstration Garden to the daffodils that sprout their blooms all around town, Brightside St. Louis is the cityโ€™s oldest and most comprehensive nonprofit cleaning and greening organization. Check out our work to grow an even more beautiful St. Louis!

Brightside is funded through donations from individuals, companies and foundations and by a grant from HUD and the St. Louis Community Development Administration.

Celebrating 40 Years with 40,000 Daffodils!

Thanks to our Brightside supporters and volunteers, over the past few weeks 40,000 Carlton daffodils were planted in public spaces around St. Louis city!

Volunteers gathered around City Hall (shown above) to plant daffodils on the grounds and in the nearby parks. We appreciate the support from VP CSI, STL Volunteers, St. Louis Master Gardeners, Washington University APO and AMEN STL that helped us plant nearly 5,000 daffodils alone this past Saturday.

Earlier in October, neighborhood groups and nonprofit organizations picked up Carlton daffodils for planting in other public spaces across the city. We can’t wait to see the city draped in yellow as these bulbs bloom in March!

Another big thanks to all who helped support planting 40,000 daffodils in honor of Brightside’s 40th anniversary!

We need your help.
