It turns out that hashtags are useful for more than just finding new photos of cats on Instagram. Sometimes, they can help us to change the world for the better. Once, a simple guy decided to remove a pile of trash under a big tree, took “before” and “after” photos, uploaded them onto the Internet and suggested for others to follow his example. Thousands of other people accepted this challenge. That’s how #trashtag came to be.
At Bright Side, we’re inspired by the people who left their important things behind and decided to fight trash piles on the streets. And their actions deserve our respect and admiration.
