2019 Beautification Days
Have you seen the #trashtag challenge trending? It’s inspiring individuals to get out and clean up garbage and debris. It originally surfaced in 2015 by Steven Reinhold, who during a road trip had a receipt fly out his car window. Troubled by the piece of garbage, he decided to pick up 100 pieces of garbage on his on trip. Since then, he’s been encouraging others to do the same and it’s been taking off on social media.
