Brightside St. Louis (formerly Operation Brightside) is the region's oldest and most comprehensive not-for-profit cleaning and greening initiative.  

We enrich and beautify St. Louis by restoring, maintaining and growing the community landscape. Our mission is to improve the quality of life in our community by educating, engaging and inspiring St. Louisans to make our region cleaner, greener and more environmentally sustainable.

Cleaner neighborhoods make people feel safer. Cleaner, greener communities result in higher property values. Attractive areas invite investment, including new homes and commercial enterprises.
