GREEN LIGHT NEW ORLEANS
Green Light New Orleans invests energy in people by assisting New Orleans residents in person, one household at a time. Volunteers install free energy saving light bulbs and backyard vegetable gardens to demonstrate that a mass movement of individual actions creates a significant impact on our environment and community.
Green Light connects New Orleans residents to relevant, local opportunities and encourages individual actions so that everyone can benefit from a vibrant, resilient, and sustainable community.

THE GREEN PROJECT
The Green Project's purpose and mission is to build a culture where materials are used to their fullest extent rather than sent to the landfill after one use. The Green Project does this by creating a vital hub of resources that echo their core values and impart lasting sustainability community wide. As the Gulf South region's only paint recycling facility, they divert thousands of gallons of paint annually from our fragile wetlands while their environmental education program fosters the next generation of eco-minded citizens. Their warehouse store provides a low cost alternative for building materials, while keeping over 6 tons of usable materials from the waste stream each day.

THE LOVING FESTIVAL
The New Orleans Loving Festival is a Multiracial Community Celebration and Film Festival that challenges racism through outreach and education. The "Loving Festival" was inspired by the actions of a Hammond, Louisiana Justice of the Peace who refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple in 2009. The festival is an important community platform for showcasing films and other creative works that explore racial stereotypes and inspire people to work together for racial justice. The festival also honors the legacy of Richard and Mildred Loving, the interracial couple whose 1967 landmark civil rights lawsuit "Loving v. Virginia" ended all race-based legal restrictions on marriage in the US.
