The hashtag made a comeback in March, with people beginning to use the #Trashtag hashtag to share pictures of themselves, as well as before and after shots, of public areas that had once been covered in garbage and were now clean.
The challenge was reportedly started in 2015 but has seen an overwhelming uptake recently, with more people being inspired to go outside and pick up rubbish in their local environment.
One wrote that:'Whoever came up with the #trashtag challenge is an absolute genius. While not all of them are healthy or serve just the goal of entertainment, the newest challenge on the internet, maybe just the change we needed.
"Trends like #trashtag allow people from all walks to be satisfied".
The constructive, and even somewhat earnest social media challenge is a refreshing change of pace, especially after a series of risky viral challenges that have taken over the internet over the past few years.
Over the past few days #TrashTag challenge has been trending, encouraging young people to compete to fill as many trash bags as possible with trash.
Social media challenges have set off many trends over the years; from amusing ones like the mannequin challenge, to unsafe ones like the Kiki challenge. Meanwhile, several users asked whether they could take up the challenge as well. In his post, Roman said this is a challenge to all "bored teens" to take a photo of an area that needs cleaning and another photo after cleaning it.
It is indeed a positive social media challenge that has flooded the internet. So, when are you going to take part in this great initiative?
