Last Saturday, some of my friends and I went to Central Park in Burnaby for a “plogging” experience. We all love to jog or run or walk for exercise. And so this time, we added some twist to it by making it more purposeful.
I learned about plogging from a post in FB. And according to Mr. Wikipedia,
“Plogging” is a combination of jogging with picking up litter (Swedish: plocka upp). It started as an organised activity in Sweden around 2016 and spread to other countries in 2018, following increased concern about plastic pollution. As a workout, it provides variation in body movements by adding bending, squatting and stretching to the main action of running.
When I found out about this, I was like, why not do it? I’m glad I got some friends who were also supportive 🙂 We had fun! And, we were happy that Central Park was clean. We did not get a lot of garbage. Good job to the park users! Keep it up!
We just didn’t do plogging, we did some “serious” work out! 😀 Central Park has work out stations and there was also a group doing Tai Chi, so we tried everything!
If you are interested to join us for plogging, let me know. We will go to other cities and hopefully we can encourage all the joggers to be ploggers!
