Just wanted to say how great it is that you guys exist. Thank you.
I am from Lafayette originally and often spent Mardi Gras in N.O. when I was a kid. Now that I'm older and living in CA it's so great to see someone finally take up the environmental cause there.
Thanks again.

It has been reported recently that beads contain lead. Has anyone tested the Mardi Cups that are thrown? I threw many of mine away years ago. I bet they are not safe as well. Of course, we all drink from these. Please see about getting them tested and report the results.

    Please share your ideas on how to Recycle at Mardi Gras.

    Do you think it is a good idea to balance Mardi Gras' environmental impact and carbon foot print by collecting funds to restore Louisiana wetlands?
