The TrashTag Challenge Is Motivating People To Clean The Environment

Internet is a wonderful place to show concern and raise your voice regarding social causes and we have seen that a considerable change takes place after an issue gets popular on social media networks. The governments of different countries may have been actively promoting cleanliness but some people still don’t mind making the surroundings dirty by throwing garbage in open. This is very unhygienic and also increases the chances of people getting ill because many diseases spread if the garbage is thrown in open. However, a campaign is getting popular on social media which is inspiring people to clean their surroundings.

4Cleaning is not the final solution

We don’t know where this place is but the situation was really grave as big machines were used to remove the garbage and clean the area but the people of the area knew that if the land is kept empty, it will be filled by garbage once again. They came up with a wonderful solution of planting trees in the area; it will not only help the environment but also beautify the area.
