What is it? A combination of jogging and picking up litter, plogging starting in Sweden and quickly spread across the globe as a fun way to stay active and do your community some good!
Plogging – the act of picking up trash while jogging – was adopted by Keep America Beautiful and Keep Lexington Beautiful because it incorporates our primary focuses: reducing litter, improving recycling, and beautifying communities.
Why Plog? It provides you with the unique opportunity to exercise and help your community. The wide range of motions used while plogging make it a more vigorous workout than just jogging. The frequent stopping and picking up litter to similar to interval training. It also can offer breaks, which is great for beginner runners!
Get Involved You can plog on your own or with a group!
Several Lexington businesses have teamed up with Keep Lexington Beautiful to host recurring plogging events. Check out West 6 Brewing, John’s Run/Walk Shop, and Water + Oak Outdoor Company for their events.
