Hashtags and viral challenges generally symbolize funny or notorious moments in popular culture, however, there is a new viral trend whose objective isn’t to entertain but to help save our planet.
1.3 billion tons of household waste is produced every year and just 258 – 368 million tons of it winds up in the 50 biggest dumpsites, and million tons of it winds up in the sea, 80% of which originates from mainland waste.
Along the same lines, the new hashtag #trashtag is requesting everybody to contribute to wear down these waste-related issues. Individuals are challenged to take a before photo of a place that needs extreme cleaning, trailed by an after photo of the well-cleaned zone.
And here are some of the best responses:
1. Faith in humanity restored!
2. Together, we can!
3. The faces say it all
4. The only challenge we need
5. Natural splendor
6. Done and dusted
7. Giving back as much as we take
9. A good day’s work
11. Like a boss!
12. One woman army
13. Black beauty
14. Worth it!
15. United we stand, divided we fall!
