Have you heard of the term, “Plogging”?!
Plogging is a new pastime hailing from Sweden that sees people going for a jog whilst at the same time picking up litter. It is a new fitness craze and is expected to take off in 2018. It’s simple, you pick and you jog – hence the term “Plog”.
The appeal of Plogging is its simplicity (all you need is running gear, gloves and a bin bag) and the feeling of getting fit, whilst adding an environmentally driven element. By adding regular squats (to pick up litter) and carrying weight, the health benefits are increased as is your wellbeing. It’s also a great way to get to know your local area and make friends.
There couldn’t be a more on-trend way of keeping fit than Plogging!

We plan to bring Plogging to Tunbridge Wells:
We are looking to build teams of walkers, joggers and runners in and around Tunbridge Wells to participate in the Great British Spring Clean, which takes place over the weekend of 2nd – 4th March 2018. The campaign is being rolled out by the award-winning environmental charity, Keep Britain Tidy and we want to show our support for this great cause. If you would like to join one of our teams, then please contact us in one of the following ways:
If you decide to participate in this event, then please be sure to use the following hashtags on your social media posts to help spread the word: #GBSpringClean #PloggingTunbridgeWells #LitterHeroes
