Jogging while doing something good for the environment – this new trend from Sweden is becoming increasingly popular in Berlin. The name comes from “jogging” and the Swedish word “plocka”, meaning to pick up or collect. More and more environmentally conscious athletes are meeting up to run together and pick up litter.

Plogging is not only good for the environment and the cityscape, but the constant running, stopping, bending down and straightening up again is good for the back, exercising the trunk muscles much more than during normal jogging. Anyone can join in, anytime, anywhere. In addition, a number of plogging groups have already formed in Berlin.
