Mardi Gras Cleanup Krewe

MARDI GRAS 2020 the CLEANUP KREWE goes LIVE!

The Mississippi Coastal Cleanup & Plastic Free Gulf Coast have partnered up to hit the streets for the Gulf Coast Carnival Mardi Gras Parade in Biloxi to help with post-festival cleanup up. Every year, a huge amount of trash is generated by the annual carnival 
celebration that takes days to pick up. As our float follows the parade, the pickup of trash will begin immediately, decreasing the chance of trash items spreading into the nearby neighborhood communities and natural environment! The goal of the Cleanup Krewe float is to promote the incorporation of mindful, waste-free partying into one of our most 
anticipated traditions!     

Calling for Cleanup Krewe volunteers!

We are looking for volunteers to help with the construction and design of the float, and volunteers to join us the day of as part of the Cleanup Krewe. We will have scheduled building days for the construction of the float, and a meeting for cleanup krewe volunteers to get everyone acquainted. Volunteers in the cleanup krewe will be walking the entire parade route along side and behind the float to pick trash up.
The parade is scheduled for Tuesday, February 25th @ 1 p.m. 2020

Ways to get involved:

  •     Help build/design the float
  •     Be a part of the parade krewe
  •     Donate supplies, materials, etc.

Come have fun with us in efforts to keep the 
Mississippi Gulf Coast 
2020 Mardi Gras 

crazy fun & crazy clean!
