What is Plogging?

The plogging craze – jogging and picking up litter at the same time.

Plogging is litter picking and jogging at the same time, enabling people to keep active whilst cleaning up their outdoor spaces. The movement originated in Sweden by its inventor, Erik Ahlström, an avid skier and trail runner; its popularity has spread across the world, partly because of its simplicity and effectiveness. He coined the term Plogging (originally plogga), which is a combination of “jogging” and “plocka upp”- Swedish for “pick up.” Anybody can go Plogging and it’s an activity for all age groups and abilities.
