KBB's Lagoon Friendly Lawn Program

Keep Brevard Beautiful’s Lagoon Friendly Lawns program, in partnership with the Indian River Lagoon National Estuary Program, is recognizing local residents who are helping to prevent algal blooms and fish kills by minimizing nutrient pollution and stormwater runoff from their yards and restoring ecosystem functions with native plants.

KBB's Litter Quitter Program

Litter Quitter is a Keep Brevard Beautiful program — backed by support from Brevard Zoo— that uses partnerships with local businesses as a means of reducing common sources of litter, like single-use plastics, plastic bags and polystyrene (Styrofoam). KBB’s volunteers help encourage local restaurants to make one small, cost-effective business practice change to reduce litter. In exchange, businesses receive free marketing promotion, discounts on sustainable products, and networking/education opportunities.
