Check out our friends in the Meador Elementary PISD 4th Grade Litter Patrol. These young leaders work hard to promote a clean campus. They know a clean campus is a healthy campus. They tell their friends how bad litter is for them and the wildlife that visits when they are inside school. So when they remove it, they know they are helping their friends to be more healthy. They also lead by example showing that not only is it good for the environment to patrol for litter, they are also doing something good for their bodies by exercising. Their excitement for and dedication of promoting a clean and healthy campus creates a sense of well-being for all Meadorville Mustangs.
Kudos to our young friends!

Houston is a hotbed for illegal bandit signs. A new bill could triple violation fines

Here’s a great article by the Houston Chronicle on the never ending problem Houston has with bandit signs. We’re excited for new possibilities of stricter penalties for offenders who litter our roadways with them. Their biligerant attitudes create harmful blight for our communities. We applaud Vice Mayor Pro Tem Houston City Council Member Martha Castex-Tatum, District K for spearheading the efforts in her district to rid their special part of Houston of this litter and criminal activity. We are very grateful she and her team participated in Keep Houston Beautiful’s #khbday21 to raise awareness of this problem and to remove as many signs as possible on April 10th with community volunteers.

Is there any way to get the city of houston to stop mowing garbage (that could be picked up) into smaller pieces of garbage? I see it happening all over town. (video from at Main and Cleburne)
Thank you KHB for loaning us to the tool to have a successful community cleanup in partnership with YES Prep Lawndale and Greater East End Management District. Together, we de-littered 2 miles of hike and bike trails and lifted 50 trees that was blocking trail access.
Eastwood Park Phase 2 beautification was a huge success thanks to so many members of the local community, Luz del Mundo, Greater East End Management District, many awesome City of Houston employees, and Keep Houston Beautiful. Councilwoman Cisneros was excited to see the renewal of a 1930s park that is very heavily utilized by the local neighborhoods and churches. Looking forward to the next phases.
