Why jog when you can “plog” – the newest fitness trend that focusses as much on your own health as on the health of the environment.
By Alexandra Deabler
“Plogging” is a combination of jogging and the Swedish phrase plocka upp, meaning “pick up,” Mashable reports. The trend encourages people to stop while out on jogs to pick up litter, by lunging and squatting.
The trend is growing in interest and has its own hashtag on social media for people to use while out in the fields picking up trash.
Keep America Beautiful, a nonprofit organization, has teamed up with Lifesum to help encourage ploggers to keep up the good work.
