The Green Project is a non-profit salvage center that develops a culture of creative reuse by building a marketplace for reclaimed materials and cultivating a respect for their value. Come visit our store or email us at info@thegreenproject.org

The Green Project’s mission is to develop a culture of creative reuse by building a marketplace for reclaimed materials and cultivating a respect for their value. In carrying out this mission our warehouse store diverts an average of 6 tons of usable materials from landfills EACH DAY, keeps 40,000 gallons of paint from finding our marshes annually through the Gulf South region’s ONLY paint recycling facility, and prevents green house gasses from being produced. In every effort we try to uphold the credo, “use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without”. To that end we provide environmental education for schools, host monthly sustainability workshops and believe that with every choice we must consider how we can leave a lighter footprint in New Orleans and on our planet.

To become a member and help sustain and support our environmental mission and ongoing educational outreach, please consider a gift of $25 or more. http://bit.ly/tgpdonatenow
