I don’t know about you, but one of my biggest pet peeves in life is when people litter. It drives me INSANE. I do my part to pick up trash around my house and my neighborhood, but it’s tough to see people litter when there’s no reason for it.

But wait, here’s some great news! The #trashtag hashtag went viral recently and people from all over the world have been pitching in, picking up trash, and posting the pics on social media to prove it.

The hashtag was actually created back in 2015 by a company called UCO to encourage people to pick up trash in the woods.

Here is just a sampling of the great photos people have been posting. Keep it up, everyone!
