This weekend, the #trashtag challenge inspired people to go to locations covered in garbage, pick up the trash, and post before and after pictures on social media.
“Me and a buddy of mine were out on a road trip in California and a receipt blew out of a window,” recalls Steven Reinhold, a UCO people ambassador at the time. “We kind of felt bad about it because it was in a really pretty location, so we decided to pick up 100 pieces of trash.”
“If we all pick up a couple of things, we can all pitch in and make an impact,” says Craig Frazee, UCO junior design engineer. “This is a movement to inspire people to be better stewards of the environment.”
