21 Drastic Before And After Photos From The Viral ‘Trashtag Challenge’

Every week, it seems like there’s some new ridiculous viral challenge trending on social media. People are either tossing cheese on babies or throwing their shoes across the room or filming themselves doing some other nonsensical activity.

However, this week’s challenge is actually achieving some good for our environment. Introducing #trashtag, the latest trend that inspires people to get out and clean up their local community parks and beaches.

After completing a cleanup, users share before and after photos on social media and the difference is pretty insane. These are just a few of the most drastic makeovers we’ve seen yet.

#trashtag 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. Peace. from pics

Присоединяемся к челленджу #trashtag , фото с уборки 9.09.18 года. Фоток с конкретного места «до и после» почти нет, но мы это исправим. Перед летом пойдём вешать таблички с призывом «не мусорить», а также убирать то, что люди накидали за зиму. ⠀ Публикование фото-результатов в социальные сети может очень мотивировать многих людей к уборке мусора на природе. Отличный челлендж! ⠀ Join the challenge #trashtag, photo from the cleaning 09/09/18. There are no pictures from one particular place “before and after”, but we will change this, when the snow melts. ⠀ Publishing photos of the results in social networks can motivate many people to scavenge in nature. Great Challenge!
