2 New Orleans Eco-friendly Projects that need Your Help

NOLA Connects.org is a platform dedicated to helping New Orleans citizens crowd fund their eco-friendly projects. To date, seven projects have launched and have raised over $3,000. Organizations that have already raised funds to impact their communities include: Garden on Mars and Treme Petit Jazz Museum. There are still two local projects that need support to reach their goals. Each project accepts donations of any amount. Read about them below:

 

Help Plant 15 Trees in the Lower Ninth Ward!

Help Sankofa strengthen wetlands in the Lower Ninth Ward. Trees keep the air clean, protect us from storms, and make the area beautiful. They reduce noise pollution, improve water quality, and can increase property value up to 14%! Each tree costs $300, but even $5 will push us forward. Help plant 15 trees in the Lower Ninth Ward

Help Build Greener Homes

The Tulane Canal Neighborhood Development Corporation has a strong track record of developing high quality, energy efficient homes for low-income families who have worked hard to become homeowners. The goal for this project is to fund and install rain barrels and rain gardens at the two homes we are breaking ground on this spring. Both are on Palmyra Street, an area badly impacted by flooding last summer. The City’s stormwater management challenges have led TCNDC to commit to including stormwater management as a part of our
definition of what constitutes a “high quality” home from now on!
