#trashtag – The Viral Challenge Cleaning Up Our Environment
The facebook post that started it all. The challenge isn’t new, supposedly started in 2015 by UCO Gear it was created to help cleanup wilderness areas.
Today it’s gone viral on social media platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Reddit.
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.
#trashtag my fiancé and his annual beach cleanup. He picks garbage every year. First year he ended up with 75 contractor bags full. Every year since is decidedly smaller. Last year it was around 50.

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.
