17 of the Best Responses to the #Trashtag Challenge

Internet challenges can go either way – the Tide Pod challenge wasn’t humanity’s best moment, but the ice bucket challenged raised millions of dollars for ALS research. This latest trend, #trashtag challenge, is definitely falling into the “score one for humanity” column.

The goal is to save the planet, one bag of garbage at a time, and with 1.3 billion tons of household waste being generated every year, it’s far past due.

The challenge is simple: take a before photo of an area littered with trash and put it next to an after photo of the same area once you’ve cleaned it up.

The hashtag blew up after a Reddit user posted a screenshot of someone who had completed the challenge with the caption “Here is a new #challenge for all you bored teens. Take a photo of an area that needs some cleaning or maintenance then take a photo after you have done something about it, and post it here.”
