A new challenge - #trashtag - has taken off on Reddit, where users post before and after photos of areas where they've rolled up their sleeves and filled up garbage bags worth of rubbish.

While the idea of tidying up public places isn't new — Clean Up Australia Day has been around for 30 years — the trashtag challenge seemed to gain traction a couple of days ago on the Wholesome Memes subreddit, under this post.

Since then a new trashtag subreddit has been born, and — predictably — grumblings about the trend being 'karma bait', memes, pisstakes, and fake posts have followed.

Despite all of that, the trend appears to be having a real-world impact, according to Callie Hyppa, a Community Safety Inspector at a Parks and Recreation department in Florida.

    I am reorganizing the site I know nobody will notice but I am not done quite yet but the main forums order has been changed and there is a new news category in Other News which is all the remaining headline news stuff not categorized - Headline News is just the stuff that shows on the main page now and the news archive is off the main forums page
  • The Helper The Helper:
    and the real archive lives off of headline news
