Our Corner, formerly known as Keep Pensacola Beautiful, has been serving Escambia County for over 40 years. Established in 1979, our roots trace back to a litter mitigation service called Clean & Green. In 1995, Clean & Green shifted courses to become a Keep America Beautiful affiliate.
In 2022, our organization received the Brand on Us™grant from local branding firm idgroup, and we underwent a transformative rebranding process. As a result, we changed our name to Our Corner, signifying our greater vision for our corner of the world—Escambia County, Florida—as a community where environmental stewardship and community beautification are lived values.
As a continued Keep America Beautiful affiliate, we aim to improve the quality of life in Escambia County by addressing common environmental challenges. Currently, our efforts are focused on education, litter reduction and recycling initiatives.
Over the past four decades, we have strived to create lasting change in environmental sustainability and community beautification through education, advocacy, local business partnerships and community involvement, in turn, making our area a beautiful and healthy place to live, work and play.
