The latest social media sensation-the Trashtag challenge-is arguably the most environmentally-impactful challenge ever to hit social media sites.

Hundreds of people shared photos of themselves litter-picking in trash-strewn parks and streets on Saturday and Sunday, while calling on others to start cleaning up their communities.

Similar social media challenges in the past have been successful in raising awareness of pressing issues.

On Instagram alone, there are more than 28,000 posts under the #Trashtag hashtag.

The viral #Trashtag challenge has seen litter pickers worldwide sharing before and after snaps of areas that have been cleared of rubbish.
