Apparently "plogging" is the newest exercise trend, and we might actually be willing to try this
There’s a new fitness trend that’s making its way around the country, and it’s really a must-know. It’s called “plogging,” it originated in Sweden, and it’s actually really easy to do. The best part of all, it benefits both you and the environment.
Now what exactly is plogging?

It’s not a crazy combination of exercises that are impossible to do. According to Cosmopolitan, plogging is a Scandinavian workout trend that pretty much involves picking up trash while jogging. In Swedish, “plocka upp” translates to picking up, so you combine that with “jogging” and you get “plogging.” Simple enough.
Although the trend is pretty new in the United States, the BBC reported that the first mention of the trend was on Instagram back in 2016. Ever since then, plogging groups have been popping up all over the world, such as Plogging Paris in France.
Just last month, Keep America Beautiful, an organization whose mission is to keep the environment beautiful and clean, partnered with health app Lifesum to support the fitness trend.
