Keep New Zealand Beautiful

We’re a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to keeping our communities clean, safe and beautiful. We’ve been inspiring, educating and empowering Kiwis to Keep New Zealand Beautiful since 1967 and our campaigns ‘Be a Tidy Kiwi’ and ‘Do the Right Thing’ are now an intrinsic part of New Zealand’s DNA.

Every year we mobilise over 100,000 volunteers across the county – picking up litter, cleaning up their neighbourhood, removing graffiti, planting trees, painting murals and much more.

We work with schools teaching our kids how to be Tidy Kiwis and how to protect this beautiful country of ours for future generations.

Help us and get involved as…
