Collinwood Plogging Cleanup!

Plogging is a fitness/cleanup trend taking off across the globe!

Come join us Monday September 10th on Waterloo for our first ever Collinwood Plogging Cleanup!

What is 'Plogging' you ask?

Plogging is a fitness trend that originated in Sweden and is slowly spreading throughout the world.

The term Plogging is derived from the Swedish phrase “plocka upp,” which translates to pick up. Plogging involves a combination of jogging and picking up trash along your running route using a plastic bag to collect the litter you find along your route.

Plogging is great exercise and also gives people the opportunity to explore the neighborhood while making a positive impact on the community.

Volunteers will meet outside the Millard Fillmore Presidential Library at 6pm to sign in and collect cleanup supplies. A Plogging route map will be posted to the event page shortly. We will review the route before heading out from the Fillmore. You don't have to run marathons to Plogg! This will be slow paced run - under 3 miles - with plenty of stops along the way to pick up trash!

Please wear clothing you don't mind getting sweaty and a little dirty and please wear closed toed shoes - preferably shoes you don't mind running in! Water and light refreshments will be provided before we head out for the Plogg.

We'll wrap up the plogg-jog around 730pm. Join us afterwards at the Millard Fillmore Presidential Library for a ploggers drink specials and good conversation! To sweeten the deal even more, all ploggers will receive a coupon to Chili Peppers Fresh Mexican Grill - good for 1/2 off your purchase of a meal item and drink!
