Donate / Get Involved

The Green Project depends on the generosity of people like you. We gladly accept your gently used building materials as well as monetary donations and volunteer support. All donations are tax deductible and used to further our mission of promoting environmentally sustainable living in New Orleans.



If you have reusable building or remodeling materials that you no longer need, you can drop off materials Monday through Saturday at our warehouse between 9am and 5pm, when our staff is available to help you. Please be aware that materials are accepted only at staff discretion and make sure to call in advance if you have questions about whether we accept specific items.

The Green Project accepts most used or new building materials.

It is important that donated materials are all USABLE.
