A couple of weeks ago, I noticed a woman jogging outdoors while toting a trash bag. Every few minutes she would stoop down to pick up litter and then carry on with her run.
"What a great idea!" I thought. "Why didn't I think of that?"
Well, it seems because the Swedish already did back in 2016, and it's called "plogging."
According to the Washington Post, the term is a combination of jogging and the Swedish word, “plocka upp,” meaning pick up, which in this case is litter.
