‘Plogging’ is the Swedish fitness craze for people who want to save the planet.
Sweden’s latest fitness craze plogging is a mix of jogging and the Swedish “plocka upp,” which means pick up. In this case, litter.
Across Europe, there are plogging groups in Scandinavia, Germany and beyond. In the United States and UK, it’s catching on with those who enjoy the outdoors, and who are fed up with seeing rubbish along their route. Plogging can allow you to also exercise different muscles when squatting down to pick up litter from the ground.
We don’t think plogging will replace jogging as daily exercise. If you turn your jog into a plog or turn your walk into a palk or your hike into pike, it’s another reason to get out and feel good about what you are doing. You’ll have a buzz from being active outdoors and by knowing you’re helping your community.
Make sure you have the correct gear to stay safe.
