The first event of so called plogging has been held in Hanoi.
What on Earth is plogging, you might think. It is a fitness trend born in Sweden, that combines jogging and picking up trash. The term “plogging” is a contraction of the words “jogging” and “plocka upp,” which means “pick up” in Swedish.
Sweden Alumni Network Vietnam (SANV) has proceeded with the first event of plogging in the capital of Vietnam, Hanoi. Despite heavy rain, many were ready to run out and pick up trash in the streets.
Besides the encouragement for fitness activities, the event also tried to raise awareness of citizens about plastics usage.
