If you’re (un)fortunate enough to be a young person living in 2018, there are two looming crises on your horizon.


The first is plastic. Our oceans are being ruined by bottles, bags, and packaging. The second is summer, or more accurately the struggle for the beach bod.


So trust the Scandinavians to come up with a new lifestyle trend that offers the perfect solution – 'plogging'.


This is a new pastime taking off in Sweden that sees people going for a jog, and at the same time picking up litter. You pick and you jog – hence the term ‘plog.’

If you’re (un)fortunate enough to be a young person living in 2018, there are two looming crises on your horizon.


And in return for your efforts you’ll be rewarded with a workout for your legs, your core (from all the burpee-like squat movements of stooping down to grab discarded cigarette boxes and drink cans), and a boost for your soul. After all, you’re helping to protect the environment.


The popularity of the trend is also spilling over into other countries.


We're building now a dedicated plogging community in London.


A World Clean Up Day London event in partnership with JCI London and Rotaract Westminster
