Elementary & High Schools

Why should your school participate in Love the Boot week?

In 2017, Gov. John Bel Edwards signed into law Act 72 (HB 111) which ensures that litter education and prevention are taught in Louisiana public schools from kindergarten through fifth grade. Love the Boot gives schools an opportunity to engage future generations across Louisiana to show they care about our state through active participation in community cleanup events. It also provides students with the chance to learn about the importance of environmental issues at a young age.

How can schools get involved and make a difference?

Organize a cleanup on or around your school campus or community. Encourage the entire school to participate or engage certain grades or classes — it is up to you! Expand the cleanup to include other efforts on campus such as gardening, painting and eliminating straws in the cafeteria. Create a friendly challenge among grade levels or classes. Include parents, as well!

Government: Local & State

Why should your government agency participate in Love the Boot week?

Local and state government agencies currently spend over $40 million a year in Louisiana on litter removal, abatement and enforcement. Those expenses can be reduced or even eliminated if we all care and love Louisiana more. If we expect citizens to behave responsibly, then our leaders need to lead the way by setting an example for them to follow.
