Plogging for the Planet

Plogging for the Planet

Are you a multitasker who loves the outdoors, exercise, and helping save the planet? Plogging (#plogging) is the newest fitness trend that benefits you and the environment.

Plogging is a combination of the words jogging and “plocka up,” Swedish for “pick up.” Basically, it means picking up litter while you’re exercising outdoors.

Whether you’re walking, hiking, jogging, biking, paddleboarding or kayaking — with a bag or container to collect trash and litter along, you can help make a difference in your neighborhood, your local park or beach, and for the planet.
