About Us -- Board of Directors
In the summer of 2015, I read a post from one of my favorite natural hangouts asking for help keeping their park clean. I decided to organize a clean-up to help them out. Then I thought, "Why stop there?!" That is where KAC all started. I met Ray through my massage business. After talking to him about another of his non-profits, Operation Pets Alive in Houston, I asked if he could give me some pointers. He decided to join the cause by the end of the meeting, and Keep Austin Clean was born!
During his childhood, Alex and his family traveled and camped during the summers and school breaks. One of the lessons his parents instilled in Alex was to clean their campsite before leaving to make sure there was no trash left behind. It was because of their influence that Alex’s passion for environmental preservation was born.
Ray sees education as key for teaching people to care for our planet, which led Bailee, Alex, and Ray to found Keep Austin Clean.
