Vote: Is Plogging
the Next Big Thing?

By Tonka Dobreva 04.22.2018 interact


Next time you’re out jogging, instead of picking up pace, you can slow down and pick up some trash along the way. You’ll be quickly catching on to a new fitness trend that aims to keep both you and the environment in shape!

It’s fittingly named plogging (jogging while picking up trash), and it already has a following around the world, from Thailand to Scandinavia. Our Channel One News reporters tried it and had quite the bast!

    While I agree that it is very good for the environment to be plogging, I doubt today’s society will catch on to this trend because of how unconcerned people can be about the environment.

    No, because for some people who don’t know what their doing it looks weird.

  3. Sebastian Bookwalters

    I think blogging is the next big thing and we need to keep our world safe:)

  4. Destini Storrs

    Yes it helps our enviorment

  5. Destini Storrs

    This is a great idea. It helps our environment in many ways!

    No its not the next big thing, because not everyone would want to jog and pick up trash along the way. If they have to stop it might ruin their training or exercise.

    I believe that plogging is not the next big thing because, when people jog they get tired and if they stop to pick up trash i’m pretty sure they wont want to start again I know I won’t.

    We think plogging is the next the next big thing because jogging is a good way of exercise and cleaning up trash will keep the earth clean and protect the animals.

  14. Hannah LeeAnn Tolle

    Yes! But, if we as human beings wouldn’t litter or throw trash on the ground we wouldn’t have to deal with picking it up. We should keep the environment clean and keep it clean we wouldn’t have to do this all the time.
