Environmental Education

One of our goals is to educate Midlands residents about the importance of litter prevention, recycling and beautification.  In addition to working with municipalities and participating in community events, we  participate in two established programs to accomplish this goal. 


Green Step Schools

Our staff serve as mentors for the Green Step Schools program, a statewide program for schools, which helps students and staff to LEARN, DO and TEACH others while completing sustainability projects in CONSERVE, PROTECT, and RESTORE categories.   Click here to learn more about this program.


Midlands Green Business Program

Keep the Midlands Beautiful partners with the City of Columbia, Richland County and Lexington County to provide the Midlands Green Business Program for businesses of all types and sizes in the Midlands.  Membership is free and through quarterly meetings, emails and communication by members on a Facebook page, members are encouraged to learn and do more over time to protect our environmental resources. Members receive recognition and promotional materials.  Click here to learn more about this program.
