Wanna go plogging?

by allthoughtswork

The term is a portmanteau of jogging and “plocka upp,” Swedish for “pick up,” and all you have to do is bring a bag on your walk, run, or hike, and pick up trash as you go. Lunge, baby, lunge! 

The genius part is calling it a sport because if you call it a sport, Americans will do all kinds of crazy shit. Hell, Oregonians have made an entire festival out of beach plogging, it’s a huge deal around here. People get testy if somebody got there ahead of them and there’s nothing left to pick up.
