Get ready for #Plogging event April 16-25! click here for details…
Plogging has benefits beyond the sense of self-satisfaction that comes from making the world a slightly cleaner place: It actually burns more calories than merely jogging.
The newest fitness craze is supposed to improve the health of both humans and Mother Earth. It’s called “plogging,” and requires people to pick up trash while on a run/jog/walk.
The term is a portmanteau of jogging and “plocka upp,” Swedish for “pick up,” according to The Washington Post. Plogging started in Sweden, but has started to pick up followers all over the world, based on the many Instagram photos that are popping up with the #plogging hashtag.
