Remember the song, “They All Ask For You” by the Meters?  The ARC of Greater New Orleans is asking you to recycle your Mardi Gras Beads. They are many drop-off places in the New Orleans metro area (see below).

“ArcGNO is a grass roots non-profit organization founded in 1953 and dedicated to promoting the independence and well-being of individuals with intellectual disabilities. We currently assist nearly 600 individuals in the five-parish metro New Orleans region. Our support services include in-home assistance, job coaching and placement, daytime community integration, and coordination of infant care and therapies. Central to our mission are social enterprises that provide work and real incomes to individuals who might otherwise be unemployed. The Mardi Gras Recycle Center is one of these enterprises. It funds over 80 market-wage year-round jobs while at the same time making Carnival a little eco-friendlier.” more about ArcGNO at
