#fast4earth Pick up Litter
I brought you into a fertile land to eat its fruit and rich produce. But you came and defiled my land and made my inheritance detestable. Jer 2: 7
It is not my litter, but it is my community.
One of the ways to reduce littering is if we all take part. As you go for a walk or jog, commit to picking up three or five pieces on the last part of your run.
You will influence others around you and begin the change the culture of people dropping litter.
“plogging” is an idea which started in Sweden. Plogging is a combination of jogging with picking up litter (merging the Swedish verbs plocka upp (pick up) and jogga (jog) gives the new Swedish verb plogga, from which the word plogging derives).] It started as an organized activity in Sweden around 2016 and spread to other countries in 2018, following increased concern about plastic pollution. As a workout, it provides variation in body movements by adding bending, squatting and stretching to the main action of running, hiking, or walking Plogging is considered a perfect activity, as it is positive both for the body, and for the environment. An estimated 20,000 people Plog daily in 100 countries and some plogging events have attracted over 3,000,000 participants.
