"Plogging" is made of a combination of 2 Swedish words: plokka up (to pick up) and jogga (to jog)... Which means to pick up the garbage while jogging.
Back in 2016 or so, in Sweden, some people concerned by the increasing plastic pollution, thought they could probably do something about it and started to collect the trash as they went for their usual run... It's now becoming more and more common.
While plogging, not only are you combining a good deed with some (serious!) workout, you are also raising awareness on this critical issue. Yes, at your own humble level, but still: that counts.
So we decided we could also do our part and started a few years ago, in collaboration with Barcelona Plogging.
Come and join us!
We usually meet in the early morning in Barceloneta, as part of our usual Sunrise Running sessions. Our aim is to extend it to all natural places and parcs of Barcelona and to go at least once a month.
All you need is your running/walking gear, some biodegradable bags and a glove to keep your hand clean... If you don't have any of the latter, we can provide you with some, no worries.
After our warm-up and a short explanation on how do "plog" properly, we're off!
