Plogging: The Solution to Keeping our Home Healthy

A new trend from Sweden is soon becoming more and more popular all across the world. This simple technique helps both the environment and us humans too. So what better day to start something environmentally and health-friendly than today, on Earth Day. Our Earth is full of the greatest wonders and is home to trillions of different species, plants, and organisms. Unfortunately, with our very rushed lives, we sometimes forget to do simple things like turning off the faucet or cleaning up after ourselves. While these are simple and small mistakes, they may be harming our environment and are getting rid of some precious pieces of nature. With all this harm on the earth, what if there was something to undo this? What if we picked up after ourselves, stayed healthy, and ensured everyone else is too? Plogging does all of this! With just 30 minutes a day, we keep ourselves fit and help keep our environment clean too. Plogging is a Swedish term mixed with “picking up litter” and “jogging”. Plogging refers to the term in which you jog/walk and pick up litter. In this series of movements, you are both expanding on your flexibility and your stamina. The jogging and stopping movement is like a squat. Over the past few years, littering has become very prominent throughout our communities. We can see a lot of this waste end up in freshwater reservoirs or large bodies of water, where animals and organisms are harmed. This man-made waste can badly hurt and even kill fish or nearby animals. More waste results in more pollution and an unhealthy environment overall. While picking up trash may sound a little dirty at first, you are actually helping our very own Earth stay cleaner and grow better. Imagine a world with no trash and all this luscious greenery, clean water, and all this exotic marine life. How fun would that be! In any case, Plogging is the right way to go. We help ourselves, our animals, and mother nature stay fit and healthy together! So how about a new challenge for this year’s Earth Day. Why don’t we take a pledge to Plog? The answer to a cleaner and better planet is finally here: Plogging!
