VIDEO: Think Green (Project) for Earth Day

The Green Project has been keeping materials out of local landfills since 1994 by accepting donated building materials and reselling them to the public from its warehouse store at affordable prices.

Lots of materials.

"You can donate pretty much anything to us. If we don't take it ... we'll probably take it," the Green Project's Brian Banks tells UNO film student Nick Dufrechou in this video about the innovative Mid-City recycler.

With Earth Day coming up next Tuesday, April 22, we thought it timely to post Dufrechou's look at The Green Project, what it does, and how you can get involved.

The Film and Theatre Department of UNO and NolaVie present this series of short films produced by the students in Laszlo Fulop's documentary class. Read Renee Peck's column about the program here.
