On October 25th, community members from around New Orleans came together to make a statement that we need action against climate change. Much like the Step It Up events in the past, the 350 event focused on the need to reduce the carbon in our atmosphere to 350 parts-per-million. Citizens gathered at Congo Square in Armstrong Park while marching bands from Sophie B. Wright School, Marcia Behrman Charter School and O. Perry Walker High School kept the crowd moving during the two-hour rally Sunday. Local trumpeter Leon “Kid Chocolate” Brown invited anyone with an instrument to join in “When the Saints Go Marching In,” drawing cheers from the crowd before he led a second-line to Frenchman Street to watch the Saints win their sixth game in a row. This event highlighted that doing nothing is not an option, and we need to act now to protect our environment to protect the health and well-being of our children and grandchildren.
Gulf South Solar, a corporate sponsor of the event, provided power for the 350 event’s PA System with one of their solar powered trailers. Have a non-profit event coming up?

Project 30-90 is an environmentally conscious music festival with stages that were run on solar and wind turbine power. Gulf South Solar was proud to be one of the sponsors of the festival this past weekend in New Orleans.
The 3 solar trailers that Gulf South Solar provided to the event helped to power to the stages and other items at the Project 30-90 Music Festival.
Gulf South Solar believes in supporting this and other environmentally conscious organizations and events that promote sustainability and conservation in our state.
