Mardi Gras Bead Recycling

Tired of holding on to all of those Mardi Gras beads? Why not recycle them?! Surfrider Galveston wants to keep as many plastic beads out of the oceans and off the beaches as possible. One way we can help is by reusing the beads currently in circulation. This helps cut down on "single-use" bead production. 


Our organization no longer distributes Mardi Gras beads but rather information and goodies on how to keep the oceans, waves and beaches clean and protected for generations to come. We do however partner with the organizations below to help with Mardi Gras bead recycling. These organizations, clean and redistribute the recycled beads. To donate your beads to one or more of these organizations, please see the links and information below.
