GROUNDS KREWE IS A 501(c)(3) NON-PROFIT WITH A MISSION TO PROMOTE, PLAN AND FACILITATE WASTE PREVENTION, RECYCLING & SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTS FOR NEW ORLEANS SPECIAL EVENTS.
Distributing and collecting recycling bags along the uptown parade route in order to keep unwanted throws and disposable waste out of our landfills, streets and storm drains.
A platform to discuss, compare and buy throws that are made from sustainable materials, are biodegradable, functional and/or benefit local businesses or non-profits.
The “marching Krewe with a job to do” collects recyclable waste from parade goers in an interactive, amusing and enthusiastic way instead of producing it.
An annual event meant to connect marching Krewes, float riders and parade organizers to local vendors of high quality Mardi Gras throws, goods and services.
Give back to your city next Carnival season. In addition to the festivities, join up with Grounds Krewe to help keep our neighborhoods clean, storm drains unhindered and visitors coming back.
Gauge where your organization’s current efforts and future goals lie for a low waste Mardi Gras and use the ideas to encourage leadership to make your event the best it can be.
Building a ground up effort of parade goers and parade throwers asking for a more sustainable and healthy carnival season starts with a coalition of citizens making their voices heard.
Take part in some of the various events and initiatives our community members and organizations are planning to help make New Orleans a cleaner, healthier and safer city.
