Plogging Update

Hillsborough Township Clean Communities wants to thank all the volunteers who participated in the Plogging event held on Saturday, June 12th.

Most of the plogging activities centered around the Triangle Rd and surrounding areas.  Some of the items found during the event were food wrappers/containers, ice pop wrappers, coffee cups, plastic bags, plastic water bottles, aluminum cans, mini liquor bottles, newspaper/shredded cardboard, discarded face masks and PPE and cigarette butts. Clean Communities would like to remind residents to dispose of trash responsibility and practice carry in, carry out procedures at parks and sporting events.

For those of you who are still unsure of what Plogging is, it is a movement that started in Sweden that is a combination of picking up litter and jogging.  This fitness craze has spread throughout Europe and is now a popular activity in the US. 

 Plogging is a great way to help the environment while improving your own health. In fact, plogging burns about 22% more calories than jogging alone.  Residents are encouraged to form their own plogging group to keep the movement going.  So, grab your running shoes, a trash bag and a pair of gloves and head out into your neighborhood, or anywhere you like to jog, walk or exercise.
