The GlassLand Project
- The Union of Glass Waste
and Coastal Restoration -
The GlassLand Project is a
New Orleans based recycling inititaive to collect the region's waste glass, divert it from
the landfills, and process it into sand-glass for use in restoring our coastal wetlands.
The secondary goal is to
develop the local facilities to process and deliver the glass to restoration sites from
Cameron to St. Tammany parishes -- in support of the restoration industry's efforts to
preserve our coastal ecology and protect the fishers, farmers and others who make their
living on Gulf shores.
The ultimate goal is to
establish a model for the nation and a world whose coasts everywhere are in jeopardy.

rebuild an island."
