In the past few years, hashtag challenges have become a viral hit all around the world. People have succumbed to dumping ice cold water over themselves, dancing like fools, and even playing tricks on their significant others. When a Reddit user posted a picture along 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,” without missing a step, people jumped into action.
The original poster of the challenge started something that really is making a difference in the world. Instead of eating Tide Pods, or whatever it is that kids are doing these days, they're getting off of their video games and heading outside to pick up the piles of trash that can be found just about anywhere.
