Taking to Instagram, Cody Hanson explained: "It's the only outdoors we have. We all use it for many different things but it is the only one we have. So let's all do our part and treat it with respect.

"Let's pick up after ourselves and then pick up extra. It only takes a few minutes of your time to pick up something that'll far outlast us humans if left alone."

I couldn't agree more, and I am 100% behind this campaign. Even if you don't feel the need to share your before-and-after snaps on social media, the important thing is actually doing the work. Tackling the problem of plastic waste and pollution requires all of us to take part and make an effort. And just imagine how good you'll feel afterwards!

Tackling environmental issues is not just about big fancy political meetings such as the G20, or stricter regulations - although those things are certainly important - it's also about getting involved and making a difference at a local level. We have more control over our own back yard than we do over anywhere else, so let's start there!

Have any of you guys done the #trashtag challenge yet? Let us know in the comments! It's be great if you have a photo to show us.
