Plogging on Palomar

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Jogging or power walking while picking up trash has a name!!!  Plogging apparently originated in Sweden.  It is a combination of the Swedish word for picking up – “plocka upp,” and jogging. Click to read all about Plogging.

Over the years I’ve noticed several very dedicated ‘Ploggers’ out and about on Palomar.  Thanks to those folks, Palomar is kept pretty litter-free but it keeps coming back.  Of course Monday mornings and especially after holiday and snow weekends, there is a lot more to find.  So, we could use a lot more Ploggers!!!

The finds in the photo I couldn’t resist one day when I was taking snow pix. I jumped out of my car and gathered them up from around the parking area outside the entrance to the State Park. Trash is even more noticeable on a blanket of snow and it must go away!

All Ploggers are welcome and much appreciated on this mountain!  Come on out and join in the fun.  Tuck a bag in each pocket of your jeans when you’re heading out.  You’ll be amazed how quick you can fill those bags.

Like a Plogging partner?  Let’s go!

  1. there was also a type of running call fartliegh, where you sprint, and stroll and jog, intermittently. No structure, suits me. I just stroll now. LOL Ray Unseitig217 E. 10th.
