COLUMBUS - On Thursday, State Senator Cliff Hite (R-Findlay) introduced legislation that will create the “Keep Ohio Beautiful” license plate, which will support the non-profit organization’s mission of empowering Ohio communities to take greater responsibility for improving the local environment through litter prevention, beautification, community greening, waste reduction and recycling.
“All Ohioans have a responsibility to care for our beautiful state,” said Senator Hite. “I am happy to help this inspiring organization carry out their mission to make Ohio a cleaner and safer place for our families.”
Keep Ohio Beautiful, an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful, is the leading non-profit organization that connects volunteers with environmental projects that produce measurable economic benefits within the state.
Working with a diverse coalition of businesses, government, neighborhoods, individuals and other nonprofit teams, “Keep Ohio Beautiful” serves as Ohio’s umbrella organization for over 35 entities throughout Ohio. Their current programs impact over 1,000 Ohio communities with the help of their large volunteer base.
The guiding principles of education, individual responsibility, public-private partnerships, and volunteer actions are critical to the success of the organization. Additional funding for the group will be a substantial way to promote a cleaner and more attractive Ohio.
