The #Trashtag has been around for a while, but it wasn't until this weekend that the social media signifier turned into a viral eco initiative. This is a great example of a sensible challenge that benefits the environment.
People from around the world are posting before and after pic accross platforms like Instagram, Twitter, and Reddit. #Trashtag requires individuals to find a space in their immediate outdoor surroundings that needs to be cleaned up, take a picture of it, pick up the trash, responsibly take care of it, and post a picture of the space after they are done.
This eco initiative is an example of how social media can be used to bring people together and organize a global community that strives to instill positive change.
