“Getting plastic out of the environment is important,”Mark Butler, policy director of the Canadian environmental charity Ecology Action Centre (EAC) told Halifax’s Star newspaper.
The challenge was reportedly created in 2015 by outdoor company UCO Gear as part of a campaign to protect wilderness areas.
But a Facebook post last week directed at “tired teens” has apparently given it new life and made the hashtag viral.

Here we are.. Very small contribution to our environment or nature. We tried to collect some of plastic which was thrown by local people at Laldhori,Junagadh. Which is one of the most beautiful areas of Girnar. As it’s our humble duty to keep ENVIRONMENT CLEAN AND GREEN and FREE from PLASTIC waste and other TRASH. So that next generation can enjoy original beauty of GIRNAR. We are challenging to all of you for #trashtag ,in which you have to clean your surrounding area and keep and make it clean. @ourjunagadh @aapdujunagadh #fnmstory #clean #plasticfree #greenandcleanenvironment #junagadh #aapdujunagadh #trashtagchallenge
The volunteers have already made beaches,parks and roads trash-free and raised the awareness about the quantity of plastic litter we produce.
