The main motive of organizing such a project is to create a trend and to motivate the general public to collect trash on the way during their regular walks. Plogga has been implemented with the soul intention of influencing the public beyond the boundaries of the city and to connect everyone in a mode of passion to join hands with our Zero Plastic Concept

Plogging is a combination of jogging with picking up litter (Swedish: plocka upp). It started as an organized activity in Sweden around 2016 and spread to other countries by 2018, following increased concern about plastic pollution. As a workout, it is aimed to provide variation in body movements by adding bending, squatting and stretching to the main action of running, hiking, or walking.
