What is plogging?

Plogging is a combination of jogging while picking up litter (Swedish: plocka upp). It started as an organised activity in Sweden around 2016 and spread worldwide in 2018, following increased concern about plastic pollution.

As a workout, it provides variation in body movements by adding bending, squatting and stretching to the main action of running.

Sonia Lipsedge and Barbara Basalgete introduced plogging in Nice Côte d’Azur on May 10 2018.
