White Boot Clean Ups

Welcome to Keep Terrebonne Beautiful’s White Boot Clean Ups page! As part of The Keep America Beautiful® Great American Cleanup, we invite you to join us in the nation’s largest community improvement program taking place annually. Down here in Louisiana’s Bayou Country, you’ll see many pairs of the cultural classic – the “shrimp boot.” While these white rubber beauties go by many names (Cajun Reeboks, Cocodrie Converse, and Swamp Nikes, just to name a few), they serve a very important purpose here. Here are four things you should know about the official footwear of South Louisiana.

When your homeland is made up of over 2,200 square miles of coastal marsh and swamp land, things can get REAL messy REAL fast.

In these parts, many locals and residents still very much live off the land – hunting, trawling, fishing, exploring, and the white shrimp boot has accompanied many of us since we’re small children along the way through these ventures. Thus, the shrimp boot is as much a part of our culture and way of life as a sack of crawfish or Cajun music on a Friday night.

Keep Terrebonne Beautiful, which seeks a clean, green, and more beautiful Terrebonne Parish, today announced its local Great American Cleanup® with The White Boot Clean Up. Keep Terrebonne Beautiful is seeking volunteers to remove litter and debris from roadsides, highways, and waterways for safer, cleaner communities. Are you ready to create a cleaner, greener, and more beautiful community for your friends and neighbors with your white boots on?

Join us for the White Boot Clean Up and be a part of something truly special in our community!

Let’s keep Terrebonne Parish beautiful together!
