Oyster Eateries Shuck Up for Shell Recycling Program


BP money is still being figured out in court and Christmas trees won't be dropped again until next year. In the meantime, local restaurants are coming out of their shells for coastal restoration. The city's new Oyster Shell Recycling Program debuted over the weekend, resulting in more than 19,000 pounds of shells that will be used to help rebuild the coast.


Oozy on the Wall


As the Big Oozy continues to leave its indelible mark on the Louisiana coast , Anthony Burrill of Happiness Brussels  collaborated with Purple Monkey in the Bywater for printing to turn oil into art. Happiness Brussels created 200 limited edition posters, screen printed using the oil from the spill as its "ink." The placards, displayed on the website with the coveted "gulfofmexico2010" URL, are emblazoned with the phrase, "OIL & WATER DO NOT MIX." All proceeds go to the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana.
