Each year, NM Clean and Beautiful, a program of the NM Tourism Department, provides grants to NM Counties, Municipalities, and Tribal governments for clean up events, recycling initiatives, and beautification projects around the State of New Mexico.   These efforts have a substantial impact on the amount of litter within the State, and on the overall aesthetic.  Through it’s grant program, NM Clean and Beautiful collects data from the grant awardees to gauge the impact, and thanks to the thousands of volunteers who help generate in-state pride by participating in these clean up and beautification events, our communities are cleaner and greener than ever.  And with our Take The Pledge campaign, more and more people are demonstrating in-state pride and volunteering to beautify our communities.
