INDIA PLOG RUN
Plogging Our Way To a Better Environment
Plogging or ‘Plucking + Running’, channels the physical activity of running and picking trash to compel a bigger change in the environment.
India Plog Run is a ‘first of its kind’ initiative by United Way India under the leadership of Ramakrishna Ganesh supported by Go Native that brings together some of the country’s biggest names in health, corporate and industry to highlight the need for reducing plastic consumption and compel a healthier way of managing trash. By conducting one of the country’s first Plog run, we hope to make garbage collection fun, healthy, empowering and the environment a better place to live in.
It is in the power of community that true transformation lies. Under the aegis of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, we hope to use plogging as a community activity that combines inherent health benefits with a larger purpose of mobilising the community for greater good.

HOW TO PLOG
Equip yourself with the right running gear and a bag to drop waste into.
Run along a designated route with peers, carrying the bag along.
Pick plastic waste along the route and drop into the bag, continue running.
At the end of the route, accumulate all collected waste for segregation.
Plogging combines jogging and picking waste. What better way to manage collections than actually taking care of our health while at it? It was wonderful to be a part of Bengaluru Blog Run 2018 and I’m going to be a part of India Plog Run 2019.
In 2018 I participated in the Bengaluru Plog Run with a group of friends. We collected plenty of plastic and waste and it was an incredible feeling to do so.
We need to keep our streets clean, our cities clean, plastic free. This was a very good initiative to be a part of and do hope we continue doing this in the years ahead.
