What do to with all those beads? A nice decoration for a few days, then they get shuffled into a closet or drawer. BUT the local folks here have a great idea for all those Mardi Gras beads.
Operation Bead Collection is a community partnership between Goodwill and LARC, is project that creates jobs for individuals with developmental disabilities. The beads are sorted by length, size and color, and then packaged for resale. The beads are then sold at LARC's Mardi GrasBeads-N-More Store for next year's parades.
Recycled beads, good job Louisiana.
