Erik Ahlström was annoyed by the litter he saw in his new hometown of Stockholm, and set about to make picking up trash into a semi-competitive sport. Thus "plogga" was born, mixing the words "plocka" and "jogga," or "pick up" and "jogging" (Google auto-translate). Plogging is big on instagram, as documented by Buzzfeed, and Metro.co.uk’s resident fitness expert, Miranda Larbi, said plogging is similar to interval training and mobility training. Plogging has gained international interest in running communities, but it's not just about jogging. As noted in Teen Vogue You can pick up trash while walking your dog or heading anywhere, or while biking or even boating.
