Mardi Gras Bead Recycling on the MS Coast

This Mardi Gras, Mississippi Aquarium is partnering with the Arc of Greater New Orleans, MSU Coastal Research & Extension Service, and Plastic Free Gulf Coast to offer bead and trinket recycling. Instead of throwing away your Mardi Gras cheer, bring your excessive throws to Mississippi Aquarium, and volunteers will do the rest.

“Mardi Gras is a deep-rooted tradition along Coastal Mississippi. We want to create a new tradition of recycling beads and trinkets to help protect and conserve our bodies of water and marine life, as well as help to create jobs for those who need them.”

Beads can be dropped off in front of the ticket window every day between 9am and 4pm until April 2.
