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.

Happy New Year!

It has been a true pleasure to serve the unique and diverse neighborhoods of St. Louis City for 41 years! We look forward to continuing this work alongside you -our neighbors- in 2024. 

To reflect on our work in 2023:

  • Nearly 6,000 volunteers participated in 300+ neighborhood clean-ups and planted more than 120,000 flowers.
  • Brightside crews removed 235,000 square feet of graffiti from over 2,200 homes, businesses, vacant buildings and public spaces.

Our efforts to keep St. Louis looking great are worth every minute when we remember why we do this work. We are lucky to play a part in making the everyday lives of St. Louisans better!
