Are you a change maker? Do you want to protect the environment, improve your community, and have some fun all at the same time? Join the first ever Toss No Mas #TrashTag monthly challenge! The #TrashTag challenge is pretty simple: find a littered place, clean it up, and post your before-and-after photos on social media. Everybody wins when we clean up our community.

Here's how it works: 
Step 1: Take a picture of a littered area
Step 2: Clean it up!
Step 3: Take a picture of yourself (and those who helped) in the littered location after you've cleaned up. (Try to include the number of trash bags you filled, and/or interesting items you found.)
Step 4: Upload the picture to Instagram and tag it with these three hashtags: #KeepNewMexicoTrue, #TossNoMas, and #TrashTag. (All three hashtags must be used to enter!)
Step 5: Check KNMT e-newsletter every month to see if your photo is the photo of the month. Winners will receive New Mexico True swag. 
Step 6: Follow Keep New Mexico True on Instagram and encourage your friends to follow, too, and join the #TrashTag challenge.
