People Are Picking Up Trash For A New Internet Challenge
March 12, 2019
The #TrashTag challenge is the best challenge social media has ever created.
Byron Román of Phoenix, AZ, ignited the new trend by calling out bored teenagers in a Facebook post.
"Here is a new #challenge for all you bored teens," Román posted on Facebook. "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."
"Due to teens lately making the news about Tide pods, Bird Box, and now the Momo challenge. Maybe I could inspire a few to do something positive," Román told CBS News.
Román's post has been shared by more than 300,000 people, and it's more than just "bored teens" taking part in the challenge.
People of all ages from all over the world are collecting trash from outdoor spaces in their area and posting before-and-after pictures on Twitter, Instagram, Reddit and Facebook.
