21+ Best Responses To #Trashtag Challenge

By: Anuradha

Environment pollution has become the number one global killer. 1.3 billion tonnes of household waste is generated per year and only 258-368 million tons of it ends up in the 50 largest dumpsites and millions of tons of it end up in the ocean, 80% of which comes from mainland waste. The severity of this issue increases in every single second as no matter what happens, there are people who still dump their trash everywhere without any concern at all.

So, at this crucial moment saving the planet is of utmost importance. There are people who engage individually and collectively in this task and the new hashtag challenge; #Trashtag has become an initiative in encouraging people to clean the plant more. People are challenged to take a photo of a place that needs to be cleaned, followed by an after photo of the beautiful area.

The challenge went viral when 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 here”.
