Trashtag: a social media challenge that invites people to post before and after photos of areas they have cleaned up has gone viral after a Reddit users challenged “bored teens” to act.
Social media challenges are not a new trend. While it started with good intentions – remember the ice bucket challenge?, we have all come across our share of weird and crazy challenges that, more often than not, fail to do anything good in the world.
Only this time, it’s different. The Trashtag challenge motivates people around the world to clean up an area in their communities and then post before and after pics on social media.
Even though #trashtag had been circulating on the Internet for quite some time, it took a post on Reddit to really kickstart the challenge. Quickly following a Before/After Facebook post from Byron Roman was shared over 320K times.
So, if you have some time on hand, think about the good you could do by cleaning up some area near you.
