Let’s be honest here, most social media challenges are pretty stupid. From consuming Tide Pods to trying to stay in a store for 24 hours straight without getting caught, social media is home to some dumb, illegal, and even dangerous challenges.
However, I can admit I have gotten behind a few of them that are for a good cause.
Yes, I am one of the many who did the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge to help bring about awareness and support for this horrific disease.
And, most recently, my daughter and I have gotten behind the #TrashTag Challenge.
As my 14-year-old often jokes (based on a meme), “Modern problems require modern solutions.” To me, that is what the #TrashTag Challenge embodies.
Our modern problem is trash. We’ve become reliant on single-use plastic, Styrofoam, and other items that aren’t exactly known for being biodegradable. Where does it all go?
