BringinTogether Communities in a Display of Nutrition, Health and Sustainability

[New Orleans, La.] - The Recycle Challenge Parade and Festival is back, and this year it's bigger and better than ever! We are excited to announce that the festival will feature not one but two locations, offering unique experiences that embody the spirit and vibrancy of each neighborhood. A special thank you to one of our main funders for a community health fair, CMMP Med (Comprehensive Medical Mentoring Program). 


To encourage recycling and reduce waste, we are implementing a "Recycle for Free Admission" program. We ask everyone to register to attend as Community Friends. Many of the workshops, and panel discussions are free. Simply bring your recyclable items, such as plastic bottles, aluminum cans, and paper products, to the designated recycling stations at the festival entrance. In exchange, attendees receive complimentary admission to enjoy a majority of the festivities and attractions that the Recycle Challenge Parade and Festival has to offer. This initiative not only encourages individuals to actively participate in recycling efforts but also highlights the importance of responsible waste management in our communities.

For those seeking a more premium experience, we are excited to introduce an affordable $30.00 VIP Pass or a $50.00 Sustainable Pass. This exclusive package provides guests with enhanced amenities, prime seating locations, and special access to VIP experiences. By purchasing this ticket, VIP guests directly contribute to the non-profit Literacy Project International aka Whose Magazine? A Youth Publication.

On Friday, April 19, 2024, the Recycle Challenge Parade and Festival will kick off at Gentilly: The Net Charter School. " Our festival aims to make a positive impact on multiple fronts, and by investing in the educational development of young individuals, we make a lasting difference in our community," said Madera Rogers-Henry, a recycle artist and event organizer.
