19 Mar Join the viral #Trashtag Challenge in YOUR #Cincyparks
Finally, an online viral trend that we can all get behind! The #Trashtag Challenge has been sweeping the internet, inspiring people young and old to clean up litter in their community. The challenge is easy:
- Find an outdoor area with litter
- Take a photo of the litter
- Clean it up
- Take a photo of the clean area
- Post it on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the tags #Trashtag and @Cincyparks
The Cincinnati Parks system consists of more than 5,000 acres with 68 neighborhood parks, 33 nature preserves and numerous other amenities enjoyed by millions of visitors each year. It takes a lot to keep all of those acres litter-free and honestly we can’t do it alone. We’re challenging YOU to take the #Trashtag Challenge in your neighborhood park! You can make a huge impact for your community and better yet, complete two challenges at once. By volunteering litter clean-up at least one hour a month, you will also be completing Mayor John Cranley’s “Give One For Cincy” Challenge. Best of all, you don’t need to sign up first or show up at a specific time. This challenge is on your time and where you volunteer is up to you!
All parks could use your help, but check out the list of parks below that could use a little extra help.
Get out there, pick up some litter, give back to your community and join the viral challenge!
