REQUEST A MARDI GRAS BEAD COLLECTION & RECYCLING BIN AT YOUR LOCATION

 
Dear Merchant/Organization leader:

Gulf Coast Industries (GCI) will kick off our 12th Annual Mississippi Coast-wide Bead Collection and Recycling Drive from February - May 2017. The bead collection project gives our individuals at Gulf Coast Industries an opportunity to learn, train, work, and earn money. In the past year you may have seen our work activity center's Mardi Gras bead collection and recycling program as featured on WLOX News Now. In addition, you may have also seen the Throw-M-Again
bead collection bins at any of the seventy-plus locations from Picayune to Pascagoula.  The collection program has been a major success and continues to grow. In the past three years tens-of-thousands of Mardi Gras beads have been collected, separated, repackaged, and sold back to the krewe members in "Discount Krewe Sacks" under our trade name of Throw-M-Again Beads.  We are delivering our collection and recycle bins throughout the community and our goal this year is to place one hundred collection bins at businesses, schools, municipalities, and other establishments along the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

 

Listed below are some of the ways you can assist the individuals at Gulf Coast Industries work activities center:

1) Be an official Throw-M-Again DROP OFF location by authorizing a collection bin.
2) Be a Throw-M-Again collection point for the employees at your workplace.
3) Assist with supplies or marketing tools. Consider making a foundation donation or financial contribution to the GCI Throw-M-Again bead collection and recycling program.
5) Purchase the Throw-M-Again Discount Krewe Sacks.

6) Spread the word about our program to your friends, family, and co-workers.
