Trash tag, you're it!

The idea is simple, let’s ignite action by cleaning up areas in need of some love, and share your experience to motivate others. Take a photo of an area that needs some cleaning or maintenance, then take a photo after you have done something about it, and post it with #trashtag and tag @StopTrashingIt in the photo!
