'Plogging' Is The New Trend That Gets You Fit While Saving The Planet

By Aimee Lutkin

There's a new trend for environmentally-conscious fitness addicts who love to multi-task. You might think that's a narrow overlap, but enough people are partaking in this new hobby to give it a name: plogging. According to Buzzfeed, plogging is how Swedish people are getting in shape and cleaning up their parks these days.

The word plogging is a combination of "pluck" and "jogging," which is pretty much a perfect description of what it is. As you run, you carry a lightweight bag and pick up trash along your path. And then, of course, you put a picture up on social media—the favorite post-activity past time for folks getting in shape everywhere.
