Personal Responsibility In a Desirable Environment
Bluegrass PRIDE is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to providing environmental resources and information to schools, community groups, local governments and citizens in Central Kentucky. Since the organization was founded in 2001, it has continually pursued its mission by providing outreach programs that focus on household hazardous waste, rain barrels, environmentally-friendly lawn care, waste reduction, rain gardens, energy efficiency and more.

Since the beginning, PRIDE has partnered with numerous agencies and individuals to develop programs that promote waste reduction and increased water quality. The award-winning Live Green Lexington Partner program is an initiative created by Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government and managed by Bluegrass PRIDE that has fostered recycling and water quality initiatives in more than 300 businesses, over 70 schools and more than 50 apartment complexes in Lexington.

In addition to community outreach and education, Bluegrass PRIDE is dedicated to providing the highest quality environmental education to Central Kentucky’s students. The organization’s experienced education staff travel throughout the region conducting lessons and activities on waste reduction, water quality, energy and other issues.
