Brett Davis is the Founding Director of Grounds Krewe, a New Orleans based non-profit with a mission to lower the waste impact of the city’s many festivals and special events. His organization has a specific focus on transitioning the world’s largest free and unsponsored celebration, Mardi Gras, away from its overuse of imported, toxic, disposable plastic parade “throws” that are often neglected and create millions of pounds of unnecessary trash in his community’s streets, storm drains and landfills.
