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 city’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.
