Viral 'Trashtag Challenge' Makes Garbage Clean Up Trendy

While not all of them are healthy or serve just the objective of entertainment, the newest challenge on the internet, maybe just the change we needed. Within a few days, the trend has caught on and people all over the world are enthusiastically participating in this clean-up.

As online challenges go, #trashtag, which went viral on social media over the weekend, is a pretty wholesome one. So, if you want to be a part or want to get tagged, all you have to do is take a before picture of the location filled with trash and, then, clean it up for an after photo.

The recent trend is #trashtag challenge, where people would clean their surroundings and post the before and after picture for the challenge.

One wrote that:'Whoever came up with the #trashtag challenge is an absolute genius. Netizens took up the challenge in good spirit and began cleaning the littered places that needed a makeover. Meanwhile, several users asked whether they could take up the challenge as well.

Though the hashtag has existed since 2015, it only boomed in popularity earlier this month, when Byron Román shared his own post on social media.

"With statistics indicating that there will be more plastic in the oceans than fish by 2050, the world must step up and commit to a more concrete action plan to generate solutions that can reverse these statistics", said Dr Thani Al Zeyoudi, Minister of Climate Change and Environment. On Instagram alone, there were more than 25,000 posts with the hashtag #trashtag - variations include #trashtagchallenge and #trashchallenge.
