Keep New Zealand Beautiful

When we were established by the Government in 1967, we were all about litter. But a lot has changed in over half a decade.

Our economy and population has grown, and so has the scale, scope and implications of our waste problem. Today, the three most critical challenges that waste poses to our country is: climate change, biodiversity loss and pollution.

We believe, as Aotearoa’s oldest and most iconic environmental not-for-profit organisation, that we have an important role to play in addressing these issues. Which is why we’re passionately committed to creating a more climate conscious, ecologically diverse and pollution free future for all New Zealander’s. But we can’t do it alone.

Help us and get involved as…
