What is Plogging?
Plogging is a sustainable activity that involves jogging and collecting litter. The term comes for the Swedish term plocka upp meaning “to pick up”. Plogging originated in Sweden but has become popular across the globe. This activity means you can get your dose of physical activity and do something positive for the planet. All that is really needed for plogging is gloves and a bin bag and to ensure your route takes you by bins and recycling points.
There is a funded opportunity for 5 Run Leaders across the areas listed above to organise monthly plogging sessions in their communities. Due to the funding source, only Run Leaders able to support projects in these areas should apply but we really encourage all Run Leaders to consider whether plogging is something that they could launch in their communities.
