Welcome to No Waste NOLA!

nowastenolaNO WASTE NOLA has a lot going on this month, so check out the info below and be sure to connect with us!
No Waste NOLA is dedicated to educating the residents of New Orleans regarding the harm caused by plastic pollution and enacting change through local popular support. We need to encourage our elected officials to implement waste-reduction policies, so we can continue to thrive as a recovering city.

Summer Social

Join us at Bayou Beer Garden on September 17 at 6:00 PM for No Waste NOLA’s first ever social! Meet the activists, learn about our cause, and just hang out. We’ll provide information on how to get involved.

Become a member, and snag a No Waste NOLA tote bag and other goodies.   See you there!


No Waste NOLA’s Letter to the Editor

Did you see our letter to the editor of the New Orleans Advocate in May? The letter sparked discussion and exposure within our community about the harms caused by single use plastic bags and other pollution.

Have we been in your neighborhood?

No Waste NOLA members have been visiting Neighborhood Associations to garner residents’ support for a single-use plastic bag ban. We’ve been to Fauburg Marigny, Faubourg St. John, Parkview, Mid City Neighborhood Organization, and the Carrolton Riverbend Neighborhood Organization.

Don’t see your neighborhood on the list?

Let us know when your next meeting is, and we’ll send a representative
