From the Swedish plocka upp (pick up), plogging is the simple combo of picking up litter while out jogging. Litter in our environment is the responsibility of all of us and I’m still surprised by how much impact a small effort can make to tidy a place up. Plogging gives the multiple gratification of making your local area nicer and helping out Nature, while getting a decent workout and some fresh air to boot.

Maybe combine it with these other jogging sketchplanations: fartlek, London running kit, clingfilm your keys, run further, or, heck, swimrun for the adventurous.
