What about ‘plogging’?

No?

Same (until now, again)!

Plogging is a popular Swedish fitness trend in which people jog and pick up litter along the way.

A dog park in Philadelphia added a new element to the Swedish trend by encouraging dog owners to bring an extra dog bag with them on their dog walks to pick up trash while walking their dogs!

“Pet owners are for the most part doing their best to clean up after their dog," said Seger Park Dog Owners Association President Andrew Freedman. "They’re picking up poop so how awful can it be to pick up some trash?"

Good point!

Plus, you are exercising, your dog is exercising, and you’re helping to clean up the trash in your neighborhood.

It’s a win-win-win situation!
