Sweden’s latest fitness craze — plogging — is making its way to U.S. shores. The term is a mash-up of jogging and Swedish ‘plocka upp,’ meaning pick up. In this case, litter.
Across Europe, there are plogging groups in Scandinavia, Germany and beyond. In the United States, it’s just starting to catch on among exercisers who are fed up with rubbish along their route.
