Plogging is a combination of jogging and quickly stopping to pick up trash while you jog. It is actually a word framed out of the combination of words ‘jogging’ and ‘plocka upp’ which means ‘to pick up’ in Swedish. A running enthusiast Erik Ahlström started this moment in 2016 in Sweden and it took almost 3 years to reach our country.
