Clean makes homes more energy efficientrestores streams & watershedsengages youth on the environment, promotes green transportation, mitigates the effects of stormwater, helps communities reduce waste, and contributes to public policy discussions.

That’s what we do. Why we do it is to help create a more sustainable society in Atlantic Canada. We work for a clean climate & clean water, and, to help us get there, we foster, educate and support clean leaders in our communities.

Clean is a non-profit, non-governmental environment organization created in 1988 through an Act of the Legislature in Nova Scotia. However, we receive no core government funding. We run the charity through money raised for our many programs and projects, which can come from agencies, businesses, government departments, foundations and individual citizens.

You may know us as Clean Nova Scotia, but we work on projects in other parts of Atlantic Canada, throughout the traditional lands of the Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik. That’s why we say we’re just Clean.
