Some Reddit users have gathered lots of attention. People from all over the world are getting involved with #trashtag cleaning up beaches, streets, and roadsides.

#TrashTag is the viral challenge that is asking people to get outside and clean up litter. People are taking to the streets with trash bags in hand looking to make a difference. The before and after pictures of messy areas being cleaned up are as amazing as any transformations picture as we’ve seen before.

It doesn’t take a large group of people to make a big impact. This man from Nepal took it into his own hands when an area was being used as a trash dump.

Commenters CrachMilson and papa_mike2 said, “Most logical trend ever”, “I have never once said this in my life until this moment, and I highly doubt I ever will again…but this hashtag/challenge is awesome”.

We think so too, papa_mike2.

Other challenges have garnered support for charities or raised awareness for great causes, but the #trashtag challenge is helping people feel good and have an immediate impact on the world. It only takes 1 person to grab a bag and go find trash to get involved and potentially go viral.

So will you be a part of the #Trashtag challenge? If you can’t make it outside it’s always good to make sure your trash doesn’t end up there for someone else to pick up. Grab loose trash around the house and sort it into recyclable bins.
