This Is "PLOGGING" New Fitness Craze Combining Running & Picking Up Trash

Fully support this new fitness/environmentalism craze of picking up trash while you get in your cardio.  So simple, so worthwhile. Sometimes all it takes is a catchy hashtag and a revolution is underway (GO HERE TO SEE #PLOGGING INSTAGRAM).

If you’re interested in group plogging where you live get in contact with your local running store or running club and be the catalyst…this is catching on worldwide:

“After moving from a Swedish ski resort to Stockholm, Erik Ahlstrom noticed a lot of litter during his daily bicycle commute. So he decided to do something about it. In 2016, Ahlstrom began organizing groups to pick up trash while jogging, and thus “plogging,” a term created by combining “jogging” with a Swedish word for “picking up,” was born. Julia Griffin reports on the activity’s global spread.”

PLOGGING ❗️firstly it’s so dark out this AM 😭 I woke up yesterday and the last thing I wanted to do was go to the gym or train even though I just had a rest day( strange for me 😂but we all have days like that) anyway instead @rachelpurcll & I went for jog/ walk( I’ll be honest) plogging- it’s basically where you go jogging but pick up rubbish along the way. It’s honestly fun- way more than it sounds😂 it’s such a distraction from exercising, especially when you make it a competition 👀& you feel like you’ve really achieved something with a bag full of rubbish at the end! I don’t understand how people can go to parks/ beaches/ wherever and leave so much shit behind them- if you brought it there you can bring it back with you🤷🏻‍♀️ I understand when we see rubbish it’s easy to walk passed because it’s not yours, we didn’t leave it there but maybe the next time you’re out for a walk anyway just bring a bag. I also think the next #hiklife we should do some plogging ✖️note: don’t forget gloves 🧤#naturalbornfeeder #plogging

One of the things I love about living where I live: in less than three minutes from my back door, I can get on the trail to the Teepee Rocks. ⛺️ The round trip hike is about 4 miles, the condition is pleasant, usually under a clear sky. 🌌🌄 I get excited every time I see the Teepees. However, this place that is literally my backyard has always been trashed. I told myself multiple times that I would hike to the ⛺️ and pick up trash, but always found myself without trash bags, without gloves🧤, almost stranded in the dark. It took a company like @BANGSshoes setting the #BLITZday theme of #BANGSgivesback for me to get all my supplies in order, set foot on the trail, spend several hours to pretend like I was #plogging, and do a selfie photo shoot. 🥾 I picked up 3 #trashbags worth of trash that day. I found fireworks wrappers 🧨💥, a tent that I thought was a body bag 💀🏕, soda cans and plastic bottles filled with dirt and moss (moss in the desert?!), a plastic milk carton, several sample size liquor bottles, a dining knife 🍴, Little Debbie wrappers, Cheetos wrappers, a gray Crayola marker 🖍, some unidentifiable plastics, and plenty of broken glass pieces. When I returned home, I noticed more trash and not enough hands/ big enough backpack to hold more trash. 🗑 I am not done cleaning up. I am not done giving my time to make this community better. I’ll leave this haiku by Yosa Buson at the end: “The light of a candle is transferred to another candle – spring twilight.” 🕯

#백제역사미션투어 로 이른 점심을 먹은 후 플로깅 캠페인을 진행했습니다! 🏃🗑. 우선 플로깅 전 버스안에서 토토님에게 고마나루와 곰의 전설을 들은 후 일행 43명은 고마나루로 향했습니다!🚃 . . 이 날 비도 오고 눈도 오고 해서 플로깅 하기 좋은 날씨가 아니였는데 토토님의 '긍정 날씨 운' 대로 비도 바람도 그쳤습니다.⛅ . . 여기서 잠깐!!! 플로깅(Plogging)이란?  줍다(Pick up)와 조깅(Jogging)을  합친 말로,조깅하면서 쓰레기를 줍는 활동을 의미해요!  환경과 건강을 함께 지킬 수 있다는 취지로 2016년 스웨덴에서부터 시작되어북유럽을 중심으로 확산 중이에요. 쓰레기를 줍기 위해 앉았다 일어나는 동작이 스쾃과 런지 운동 자세와 비슷하다는 데서 생겨난 플로깅은 쓰레기를 담은 봉투를 들고 뛰기 때문에 단순한 조깅보다는 칼로리 소비가 많고, 환경도 보호한다는 점에서 호응을 얻고 있지요! . 현재 플로깅을 실천하는 다양한 ‘플로거’들이 성행하고 있고, 국내에서는 개인은 물론 플로깅 동호회가 활동 중이며 언론에서도 주목하는 활동이랍니다! . . 이제 본격적인 #플로깅 시작! 사실 토토의 럽트립 멤버들과 열심히 이곳저곳 쓰레기를 주우면서 다녔는데요 돌아다녀 보니까 고마나루공원 곳곳에 쓰레기통들이 배치되어 있어서 그런지 쓰레기들이 많지 않더라고요🗑 . . 하지만 수풀 사이사이 보이는 쓰레기들을 보고 좀 화가 났어요!😡 차라리 보이는 곳에 쓰레기가 있으면 바로바로 주워서 치우면 된다지만  수풀 속의 쓰레기는 낙엽에 가려져 있거나 자세히 봐야 보이기 때문에 쓰레기가 있는지도 모르겠더라고요.😯 쓰레기를 주우면서 그런 모습들에 너무 안타까웠어요😔 . . 모은 쓰레기들을 잘 모아 서울로 가져왔습니다. 플로깅을 해보니까 확실히 환경에 대해 다시 생각해보게 된 것 같아요 플로깅이 생활 속에서 실천하는데 까다롭거나 어렵지 않아서 많은 분들이 같이 동참해 주셨으면 좋겠어요. '누구'보다도 '내'가 먼저 실천해서 점점 활성화가 될 수 있도록 집 앞 공원 산책 갈 때 스스로 해보려고 해요!!🏞 . . 마지막으로 플로깅 완주기념으로 @metalgo_kr 에서 제작한 천연수제도자기메달을 받았는데요, 금속소재는 쓰레기가 될수 있기 때문에 자연으로 돌아 갈수 있는 사기로 만든 메달이에요. 역시 건강과 환경을 생각하는 나라지킴이 안정은 (@totoolike)님과 엑스크루(@x__crew) 의 깊은 뜻이 담겨져 있지요? !!❤ . . . 고퀄의 사진은 @running_record🙇 . . . . #토토의런트립 #위대한금강역사여행 #런트립 #토토 #대전마케팅공사 #부여 #익산 #x_crew #가민 #2XU #fijiwater #onrunning #아이러너##plogging
