While the trend dates back several years, a March 5 post on Facebook from user Byron Román appears to have breathed new life and directed it toward teenagers.

“Here is a new # for all you bored teens,” Román posted. “Take a photo of an area that needs some cleaning or maintenance, then take a photo after you have done something about it, and post it. Here are the people doing it #basurachallenge join the cause.”

“Due to teens lately making the news about Tide pods, Bird Box, and now the Momo . Maybe I could inspire a few to do something positive,” said Román.
