- Two friends have found a way to make taking the trash much more exciting — by dressing up.
- Danielle Askew and a friend created a Facebook page to share photos of themselves wearing costumes while taking out the trash.
- Soon enough, they were joined in by more than a million people from around the world!
Taking the trash is usually a much-disliked chore. But netizens have found a way to make it a source of laughter and entertainment for the online community — by wearing costumes during their garbage bin outings.
There’s even a Facebook page dedicated to people who share photos of themselves getting dressed up to take out the trash. The Bin Isolation Outing Facebook group was created by Danielle Askew and her friends from Queensland, Australia.
Danielle had told her friend how she had been feeling excited to take the trash out daily because it has been her only chance to go outside during the stay-at-home orders.
Danielle’s friend felt the same, so they decided to dress up for the occasion and share the photos online:
They set up the Facebook page to share photos of their bin outings with their friends in Hervey Bay. Within weeks, more than a million people from around the world joined in.
Some people dressed up for birthdays spent in isolation while some put on their favorite Halloween costumes.
The Facebook page has since has become a community hotspot for creativity and support during the pandemic.
Danielle told ABC News, “I have had a lot of people private message me, and also on the page, to say thank you so much.
They were quite down and this has made them smile and laugh. So [they say] ‘thank you for bringing a little bit of light into the chaotic world we are in at the moment’.”
Share this story with your friends and spread the laughter! Or better yet, why not join in on all the costumed fun?
