Have you noticed whether you’re on the trail, the beach, or just around your neighborhood that trash piles up?

What can you do about it?

I know!!!

Have you tried “plogging”?

 

Plogging is a combination of jogging with picking up litter (Swedish: plocka upp)! It started as an organized activity in Sweden.

As a workout, it provides variation in body movements by adding bending, squatting and stretching to the main action of running, hiking, or walking.

In support of National Cleanup Day, Saturday, September 21, 2019. We hope you can do your part in cleaning up our country.

You can even track it with my friend’s app, Litterati!  How cool is it that you can track litter in your backyard, on your street, and in your environment!
