In 2019 Grounds Krewe conducted another iteration of the “on the route” recycling initiative in partnership with Entergy, The Urban Conservancy, Arc of Greater New Orleans, Republic Services, The Krewe of Muses and The Krewe of Thoth. Entergy volunteers and workers from the Youth Empowerment Project were able to collect and divert 7,500 pounds of throws and 7,000 aluminum cans and plastic bottles. It was by far the most successful waste reduction and recycling effort in the history of Mardi Gras.

HOW IT WORKS:

 
 

Plans are underway to scale the recycling program up in terms of parade days and program area for 2020. More details to come soon.
