“Plogging” for Health and Community

Have you ever heard of “Plogging?”  Plogging is a new European trend that combines jogging with picking up litter- a play on the  Swedish ‘plocka upp’ (pick up) and jogging!

On March 20, Coshocton Recycling & Litter Prevention teamed up with EnVie Fitness for a one-hour plogging session. This workout took the place of a “bootcamp” class, but we still got a good workout while cleaning up around the EnVie Studio, Main Street and Court Square.

EnVie members and family all pitched in to help clean up litter, get in some squats and burn some calories. In total, 56 pounds of litter were collected in an eight-block area– and disposed of properly!
