In last edition’s article Trash Talk, we learned that much of the effort to solve the local litter issue has been and must continue to be from a grassroots level. Can we all band together to stop trash from polluting our precious lakes, rivers, forests, and meadows?
Let’s show off our stewardship of this planet and join the global #TrashTag movement. You have a month to find a spot — in the woods, along a beach, on top of a mountain — that needs some TLC. Snap a photo of this littered area, get to work packing out the trash that’s there (music and friends makes this a good day’s adventure), and photograph the pristine way you’re leaving the spot. Then, upload your pic to your favorite social media platform, include the #TrashTag and tag @moonshineink, and voilà! Besides a feeling of a job well done, you’ll be entered into a raffle with prizes including a Homewood lift ticket and a Moonshine Ink sweatshirt. And we’ll feature the best #TrashTag photos in a future print edition!
Win a Moonshine Ink sweatshirt or a Homewood lift ticket!
