Sweden’s latest fitness craze — plogging — is making its way to U.S. shores. The term is a mash-up of jogging and the Swedish “plocka upp,” meaning pick up. In this case, litter.  Across Europe, there are plogging groups in Scandinavia, Germany and beyond. In the United States, it’s just starting to catch on among exercisers who are fed up with rubbish along their route.  What could be better for THPL?  Plogging brings with it so many of the key elements that make THPL meaningful for our lives and the planet that we live on.  We care about each other and the earth and we bring it to our fitness activities (while jogging).  Such a great combination and it seems to be that we can easily make an impact and make a difference.  So, no permission required – let’s all start plogging!
