HIGHLIGHTING SALVAGE

Each year, the Green Project reclaims 2 million pounds of usable materials from the landfill and resells them at an affordable price to the community. Our overarching mission is to demonstrate that these reclaimed goods have value.

Salvations exemplifies this mission in real time by pairing reclaimed materials with beautifully crafted, one-of-a-kind design.

UPLIFTING LOCAL TALENT

Over 9 years, Salvations has exhibited the work of over 100 designers from Louisiana and the Gulf South. Promoting the talented individuals that make up our community is a pillar of this event.

At the exhibition, designers’ work is showcased and auctioned in support of both the designers and the Green Project.

EXEMPLIFYING SUSTAINABILITY

Aligning with our environmentally-minded mission, we source Salvations locally, featuring New Orleans-based vendors, women- and minority-owned businesses and local food options.

In 2019, we composted 304 pounds of food waste and recycled 80 pounds of glass, 6 pounds of plastic and metal, and 74 pounds of cardboard.
