You Should Be Plogging!

Do you plog?  It's all the rage in Sweden and it's something you can easily do too!  Plogging is simple.  When you are out for your morning or afternoon jog and you come across some litter, stop and pick it up; hence plogging! To prepare, ploggers usually wear gloves while they run – to make handling trash easier—and always carry large trash bags. Once the bag is full, it's either recycled or thrown away (depending on its contents), which ultimately reduces the amount of harmful litter that makes it way to the ocean. Don't limit your plogging to just one measly route. Do yourself a favor and plan out different plogging paths for each of your runs. This way, you can de-clutter more ground while exercising and score a nice change of scenery. Thanks to social media, finding people to plog with is easier than ever (there are plogging Facebook groups!). Make a habit of inviting friends to join you on your weekend plog, or organize weekly group outings so you can spread the word about plogging while simultaneously disposing of tons of trash.
