Photos Showing #Trashtag Challenge

 You are most likely aware of the hashtag (#) used on social media, which generally represent funny or iconic moments in pop culture. But, a new viral movement has taken off. It's goal is not to entertain but to help save the planet. This new movement wishes to spread knowledge to people. For instance, did you know that 1.3 billion tonnes of household waste is generated per year, and only 258-368 million tons of it end up in the 50 largest dumpsite. Meanwhile, million tons of it ends up in the ocean, 80% of which comes from mainland waste. Meanwhile, the new hashtag #trashtag, wants everyone to chip in to chip away at this trash problem. In this new movement, people are challenged to take a before photo of an area that is in need of intense trash clean-up followed by an after photo, of the now, beautiful area. Take a look, and may it inspire you:
