Cleveland Plogs Lakeshore Blvd!
Join Cleveland Plogs every last Wednesday of the month through October for a neighborhood plogging cleanup!
For this month's plogging, we'll be back at the Collinwood Rec Center (16300 Lakeshore Blvd) to hit up Lakeshore Blvd! The Plogging route will cover the Lakeshore Blvd business district along with several surrounding streets. Best part of all, you don't have to run marathons to Plogg! This will be slow paced run - just under 2 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.
We'll cross the finish line around 730pm back at Collinwood Rec Center and talk trash about Cleveland Ploggs and growing a plogging movement in the neighborhood and beyond. Best of 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!
And be sure to mark your calendars for our last plogging of the season on Wednesday October 30th on Waterloo. Our last plog will be Halloween themed along with a costume contest!
*Still don't know what the heck 'plogging' is all about?
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 a great opportunity to make a positive impact on our environment and our neighborhood.
