30 Epic Responses To The #Trashtag Challenge

Hashtags and viral challenges often represent funny or iconic moments in pop culture. However, there is a new viral movement that has taken off whose goal is not to entertain - but to help save Earth.


1.3 billion tonnes of household waste is generated each year, with only 258 -368 million tons of it ending up in the 50 largest dumpsites, and millions of tons of it ends up in the ocean, 80 percent of which comes from mainland waste. The new hashtag #trashtag wants everybody to chip in to chip away at this trash problem. People are challenged to take a before photograph of an area that needs serious trash clean-up, followed by an after picture of the beautified area.


The hashtag blew up on the internet after a Reddit user posted a screenshot of somebody that 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 it here.” Scroll down below to see some of the best photos from this environmentally-friendly hashtag!

#trashtag Manila Bay has been considered one of the dirtiest bays across the world. After 11 years, the Supreme Court finally issued a cleanup order which thousands of volunteers joined last January 27, 2019.

Annually, more than 14 billion pounds of garbage is dumped into the world’s ocean (mainly marine life toxic plastic).This has contributed to what is called the Great Pacific Garbage Patch or Pacific trash vortex, a cluster of marine debris in the Pacific Ocean that is twice the size of the U.S.

Along the Potomac River south of Washington, DC. We have to clean up the existing mess, but bottle deposit laws and styrofoam bans would prevent most of it. Contact your local, state, and federal representatives and insist on this.

There's an organisation I volunteer at and we basically do cleanups like this in the city. Places that have been forgotten by the local government and make them accessible for the public

We did our first “official” beach clean-up in Belize that past December. Before this I’d say we were classified as “beach(trash)combers”, picking up the odd straw and plastic bottle we saw on our walks. However, for Belize, we travelled there with the intention of dedicating time to picking up any trash we came across on our hikes and beach walks. We even created a social media “clean-up crew” by partnering with other travellers to do a clean-up with us at the same time.
