The #TrashTag Challenge Is Making Cleaning Up The Planet Go Viral

The 'Birdbox Challenge', the 'Kiki challenge', 'neknominate' - a lot of social-media challenges are stupid and others are downright dangerous. It's time we had a few positive hashtags trending: enter #trashtag.

No it's not a back tattoo people see when you bend over, but the 'Trash Challenge' or #trashtag is encouraging people across the globe to clear up beaches, parks and litter-strewn streets before calling on others to do the same in their own communities.

The idea of #trashtag has been around for years but over the weekend that it started to pick up momentum again with people posting before and after pictures to social media. Because: everything we do is for the 'gram, right (insert crying emoji).

The movement calls on 'bored teens' to get involved and, as word is spreading, so is #trashtag.

And the cleanup transformations have been pretty dramatic with some explaining why the movement is so crucial (aside from likes and follows).

Taking to Instagram, Cody Hanson explained: "It's the only outdoors we have. We all use it for many different things but it is the only one we have. So let's all do our part and treat it with respect.

"Let's pick up after ourselves and then pick up extra. It only takes a few minutes of your time to pick up something that'll far outlast us humans if left alone."
