  • Mission statement

    We’re Keep Wales Tidy – the charity working across Wales to protect our environment for now and for the future.

    We know a good quality environment matters to people and the benefits can have a big impact on our communities, health and well-being and economy.

    We take action to make a positive difference and our work ranges far and wide! We deliver practical action, environmental education, training, business services and environmental solutions across Wales.

    We help set the standards high for parks, beaches, marinas and tourism in Wales through our range of internationally-accredited awards as well as being policy and research experts in our field.

    Our values at Keep Wales Tidy are:

    - to take action to make a positive difference
    - to put people at the heart of everything we do
    - to protect our environment for now and for the future

    We do all of this for one reason – our vision is a beautiful Wales that is cared for and that can be enjoyed by everyone.
