Plogging

Plogging has come to Kitchener! Started in Sweden, plogging is where people jogging or walking on local trails take a bag and collect litter while they go. Plog’ers and Plogging groups are spreading across the world as a way of helping keep our trails clean while getting in your daily exercise.
