PLOGGA was founded in Sweden in 2016 by Erik Ahlström. Today we are an association and a global movement where the activity itself is to pick up garbage while jogging. Walking, skateboarding, cycling, swimming or other things are also just as good. Plogging is a change of attitude and ploggers are proud garbage pickers who do something for our environment and their own health before it's too late.
Our vision is simple: to create a clean world. We've been stuck thinking that it's wrong to pick up other people's garbage. People have lost respect for the environment around them and continue to throw garbage around them more and more, and we see it everywhere - on our streets, the forests, and in our waterways and oceans.
Plogging is an easy solution to reverse the current negative trend and help create a long-term sustainable society. Plogging is a concrete, inclusive and positive solution to the problem; by Plogging it is no longer taboo to pick up other people's garbage!
Today there are Plogging events on all continents and more than 50 countries. On a daily basis we help start-up active Plogging groups all over the world. Like us on Facebook for continuous updates on events, information and more!
