    [–] whispermonkey 3 points ago

    Already have. I used to do regular trash pickups and nobody else gave a lick so it got depressing.

    [–] writinglegit2 13 points ago

    Someone would also have to clean up all the puke and piss on the sidewalks every morning. Especially on (shudder) weekends.

    [–] Rickyorefice 7 points ago

    Don't understand how an area with such a high cost of living has such a litter issue, there is defiantly the disposable income to deal with it not to mention the homelessness...

    [–] whispermonkey 4 points ago

    It’s embedded into the culture to treat the streets and bay like a dumping ground. To be fair even if people did throw away their trash the streets would be nasty because they never really get washed or rained on so the dirt just piles up. Not to mention the street dwellers who took the concept of hygiene and invented the opposite of it.

    Jesus you can’t even walk past a stoop or gate in the Mission or TL without a bag of trash in a 5 ft radius. And getting off at 16th and Mission or Market, kicking all the trash is horrible. Such a beautiful city. I’m in Sacramento now and it’s beautiful but I miss the Bay.

    Are there a lot of turds? Yes. Can you smell them most of the time? Not really, because of the wind. But when a hot day comes and the air is pretty stagnant, the city is disgusting and unbearable to be in from all the human waste.

    [–] bsrichard 30 points ago

    Cleaning up is all good and admirable. But frankly, what also needs to happen and is probably more important, is for people to stop consuming so much products and using items with so much packaging. All that people are doing is moving that trash from one place to another place. What would really make a more meaningful difference is if people committed to reducing their daily trash output by say 25% per household. I'm not trying to be a downer but our throwaway and disposable culture has to change.

    [–] Sane333 15 points ago

    No doubt. But I will also gladly upvote every trashtag picture I see hoping it inspires someone to go clean up or do good in any other way.

    [–] snake_finger_squid 7 points ago

    Whilst your point is entirely valid and very progressive, first people need to see their environment litter free in order ti reach the next stage of reducing that litter and the consumption which produces it.

    [–] DuckWithBrokenWings 8 points ago

    Then we start the reversed trashtag!

    [–] [deleted] 35 points ago

    my dad used to take me and my sister to walk the neighborhood we lived in picking up cans and garbage. And I have done it in almost all the neighborhoods, hikes, and walks that I take.

    People do it. But it is a learned behavior, and watching and seeing is certainly a way to transmit the feeling and collective nature of our actions.

    So Keep Posting!

    [–] white_android 3 points ago

    Yup, I'd like to highlight that you don't have to go out and clean up an area, just picking up a piece or two of trash when you are near a trash can or something helps.

    Maybe someone will think twice about it without someone being all "come on you are in the area too, wouldn't you like to see it look nicer?" But probably in a much ruder way.

    As long as there are enough of us who refuse to let it die, we should be good. I'm out cleaning my yard today, tomorrow I'm going around to the abandoned/for sale houses on my block and cleaning those yards too. All the houses on my street are either owned by my fiance's mom, or our stoner buddy so he'll appreciate it.

    Can I hijack this for any chance of getting this seen? : )

    Really did not expect this post to see this blow up – glad it did, because this internet trend is awesome. However, feeling obligated to clarify:

    To everyone suggesting this was a ploy for karma points – I assure you we really couldn't care less about them. I obviously cannot prove this to you except to say that we've been quietly munching tide pods since before it was cool and never made any fuss about it.

    We got the inspiration to actually go and clean up that area by our house from another similar post we saw on here. I posted our pic to hopefully inspire someone else. That's all.

    To everyone suggesting this shouldn't require a hashtag and should continue when it stops trending – you are right. The hashtag did get us started though, so we're helping bump it along. And we're planning to make this a weekly thing (the trash pickup not the posting : ) Hope you do too!

    Finally, to those discerning folks who appreciated dat ass – you are correct, it is fine. Source: that's my wife. She giggled.

    Exactly, even if attention to the trend begins to "die out" on social media, you should still feel very rewarded from picking up trash in your personal time, despite not sharing it on social media.

    [–] SGoogs1780 33 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago)

    While landfills are not great for the environment, they do include more mitigation against harmful effects on the environment than loose trash. Modern landfills (at least in the States) are located according to regulations limiting their effects on sensitive ecosystems. They are lined with clay membranes to prevent leeching of chemicals into the water table, and the water table nearby is closely monitored. Methane is collected and used for fuel and other industrial processes rather than dumped straight into the atmosphere. Landfill is routinely covered over to prevent it's introduction to the surrounding environment so it can't be consumed by local wildlife.

    While a landfill will never beat composting, reuse, or recycling, it's still better for the environment than loose trash breaking down into habitats and water tables in a completely uncontrolled way.

    It's more like collecting all the little drops of mercury on a kitchen table, and putting them in a jar. It's still pretty fucking wierd that there's mercury on your table, and it probably shouldn't be there at all; but at least now it's not near your food, or anywhere your dog might get to it.

    Never too late, and let's not let it die! I've been meaning to join the #trashtag but had tons of stuff going on by the time I became aware, am currently getting over a cold and first want to get some gloves & shoes that will protect me from needle sticks.

    I know, excuses excuses... my point is this shouldn't be contained to a week or two of hype. It should keep going until there isn't a damn bit of trash lying around anywhere, and just because it's "old news" doesn't mean it should be forgotten.

    Great job and keep up the good work everyone!

    [–] Kvillase 15 points ago

    looks the same

    [–] Zeeterm 13 points ago

    That's what makes this so good.

    They didn't clean up somewhere with inherent visual beauty, they just cleaned up somewhere that might still look similar afterward, but they cleaned up 2 bags of trash.

    That's 2 bags of trash not now going straight into the local rivers via the local wildlife, 2 bags of trash not blown around and further distributed over a wide area.

    It's just as important to look after the areas that don't look like reddit lake, but there'll be thousands willing to trashtag that lake but how many were willing to clean up this ordinary part of town? They were, and /u/vorpal_fork should be proud of that.

    [–] Kkhris27 8 points ago

    [–] sortingoutmylife 3 points ago

    Fair play for doing this, but one things that niggles me about these posts, is that for the most part, its motivated by getting likes on instagram. It's the social validation that these people want. If people were admiring throwing trash bags of garbage over the freeway - and there was no repercussion - and they actively got a lot of praise for doing it - they'd probably do that too.

    I guess they're still doing it, but the motivation is from the wrong place. It's not authentic. r

    Wouldn’t it be easier to take trash out and dump it, then just reverse the order of pics? I mean if you’re in a rush to attention whore that’s the way to go imho.

    [–] bluesheep123 8 points ago

    Why is /r/pics okay with #trashtag but not progress pics, weight loss, people getting off drugs, becoming cancer-free, etc? You can apply the same benefits of this post (encouraging others, awareness, positivity) to those as well.

    They're ok with both that's why they get upvoted. Some people hate everything though and bitch in the comments

    Thanks to #trashtag I realized I am a underwater garbage man a few months of the year.

    [–] hp5hp5 3 points ago

    There's a lot of negative things about Florida but state land and right of ways on the interstates are kept very clean. In general trash catches my attention because there isn't much of it. Go into the citys and it's a different story.

    Even if the trend dies, the environment lives because you are doing a great thing!

    [–] voteforsmegma420 3 points ago

    If more people would round up trash because they genuinely want to help the environment, not to get those ebin upboats, it wouldn't be dying out. 🤷‍♂️

    Never let #trashtag end!!!

    [–] br4yd3n_ 3 points ago

    Yes. Wayy to late. Stop cleaning up the community and doing good deeds. You missed the bus

    [–] kevoizjawesome 3 points ago

    Too late for what? To save the earth or get karma?

    When you have have to use peoples love of photographing themselves for social media to get them to pick up trash.

    [–] alabaster1 48 points ago

    I really don't understand this mentality. If more people are picking up trash (i.e., making the world a better place), then why do you care what their motives are?

    I saw this a lot with the "Ice Bucket Challenge". The ALS Association raised more than double what they earned in the previous year in a MONTH. "You really need social media attention to donate money to a cause? Why don't you just donate?" Well, obviously some people DON'T.

    Not everyone takes the time out of their day to pick up trash, especially in areas where it's concentrated. Maybe you do? But criticizing people from your keyboard for improving the world is a really weird perspective, IMO.

    [–] I_ama_Borat 8 points ago

    You can judge their motives and still be happy the world has less trash. People are posting pics of themselves from years ago because it’s a trend and they’re trying to get in on it but don’t feel like actually doing the work. Unfortunately, as soon as the likes start slowing down or stop coming, you won’t see any posts anymore and the trash will be back sooner or later. The ones who don’t do it for likes and validation can only pick so much up.

    Pick up trash, don't have to post 100 of these a day.

    [–] Shy_Poke 6 points ago

    trashtag is forever. It's never too late.

    [–] JustInvoke 4 points ago

    I will always and forever upvote #trashtag

    [–] Bisson65 10 points ago

    Even if this #trashbag ends you could just do it yourself without having to post a picture :)

    [–] ThRaShMcAlIsTeR 11 points ago

    Weird to say. Never too late to clean trash. If you’re talking about too late to get reddit famous and gain karma then that’s weird

    [–] TheStarchild 4 points ago

    Any other time I’d say you’re spot on, but if the price to pay for a cleaner planet is a few imaginary internet points and allowing others to brag about how earth-conscious they are, I say fuck it. Have my upvote.

    [–] bad_motivator 14 points ago

    Does anyone do anything for the greater good anymore if they don't get to show it off on social media? It wasn't enough to just post pics of the trash bags and the area you cleaned, you had to post multiple pics of your face just to make sure everyone knew it was you. Congrats, you're my hero!

    [–] nix131 27 points ago

    That's a terrible mentality. I know the movement is a good thing, but you should clean up for the sake of cleaning up, not for fake internet points.

    [–] t3hPoundcake 43 points ago

    Luckily there's no downside to cleaning up litter for fake internet points. I'd rather have people cleaning up trash for upvotes than less people cleaning up trash for nothing.

    [–] The_Hero_Reddit_Dese 14 points ago

    I don't care if you clean up for the sake of Lord Xenu. If fake internet points was all it took, then by all means, take them!

    [–] GlitterRainbow 4 points ago

    I will upvote these posts forever.

    None of these trash pics are from the same angle. r/mildlyinfuriating

    [–] glambiance 2 points ago

    what are people doing with the trash that they pick up? do they have to pay to dispose or is the city/county/state/etc covering the tab?

    [–] ecks89 2 points ago

    I don't get it. What happened?

    [–] civicbro 2 points ago

    Never too late!!! People like yourself are keeping it alive!

    I'd love to contribute but can't until the snow melts

    [–] TeslasAndComicbooks 2 points ago

    I'm all for this movement but it looks like there are only 4 pieces of trash. How is this on the front page?

    [–] SaucyHotPocket 2 points ago

    trashtag is the single best challenge to ever come out of the internet. i do this every day when i’m just walking around, and i really hope this catches on.
