The Green Project's 25th Anniversary Celebration

25 years graphics-01.png

The Green Project began in 1994 as a volunteer paint recycling program after it became apparent that New Orleans needed a responsible alternative to dumping paint and polluting regional waterways. With equity in mind, our founding members sought to recycle usable paint and resell it back into the community at an affordable price. In time, this idea expanded to building materials and our salvage store was born.

This September, we are celebrating 25 years of creative reuse, recycling and protecting the natural world around us! JOIN US!

On September 24th, we're revealing all sorts of surprises and want YOU to join us! We're CELEBRATING with:

  • A front of house re-design with murals, a community corner and re-freshed infrastructure

  • Launch of the Green Project's handmade merchandise collection (all made with reclaimed materials!)

  • Brand new membership program, giving you more perks & deals

  • Story sharing from those involved with TGP from 1994 to now!

Who's Invited: YOU!

Customers, members, donors, community partners, past and present TGP staff and board members...everyone is welcome to join us.
