Don’t Throw Them Away, Throw-M-Again!

When Mardi Gras comes and goes, two things are for certain. The need for beads and the need to get rid of them. Gulf Coast Industries in Gulfport, Miss. has created the perfect solution. Their Thrown-M-Again Bead Project gives you the opportunity to donate your old Mardi Gras beads or purchase recycled ones. The heart of the mission is to create jobs and opportunity for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Gulf Coast Industries is a division of Gulf Coast Mental Health Center, Region 13. For more information including a full list of drop-box locations visit or find them on Facebook here. Or contact them by phone or email: 228-868-2072
