The first is the totally unsafe and awful, like the inexplicable Tide Pod Challenge. While not all of them are healthy or serve just the objective of entertainment, the newest challenge on the internet, maybe just the change we needed.

It's not every day that a viral social trend contributes to something that touches people's lives outside of social media.

Some of them are wearing protective gloves, too, which is a good idea if you also want to get involved, as you don't quite know what you're picking up.

A new challenge #trashtag has taken over the world where the users post before and after photos of areas where they've rolled up their sleeves and filled up garbage bags worth of rubbish.

The #trashtag challenge requires people to take a "before photo" of an area that needs some cleaning or maintenance, and an "after photo" when people have cleaned or helped maintain the area. Within a few days, the trend has caught on and people all over the world are enthusiastically participating in this clean-up. The main goal of the challenge is to clean up their own communities before someone else does.

It's unclear how long #Trashtag will thrive on social media, however, the viral movement has led to more outdoor spaces looking cleaner (and trash-free) around the globe. We are loving Mother Nature's new makeover. In late 2018, the Swedish practice of #Plogging, which is picking up trash while jogging, began to gain some traction in Canada and the United States. Participants were asked to throw a bucket of ice over themselves and then nominate others to take part.
