Project: Plogging

Plogging is a combination of jogging with picking up litter (merging the Swedish verbs plocka upp (pick up) and jogga (jog) gives the new Swedish verb plogga, from which the word plogging derives). It started as an organized activity in Sweden around 2016 and spread to other countries in 2018 following increased concern about plastic pollution. As a workout, it provides variation in body movements by adding bending, squatting, and stretching to the main action of running, hiking, or walking.

Each time the royal family is outdoors, we will pick up any litter we find.


  1. Picking up litter.
  2. Take a photo of the litter.
  3. Weigh the litter.
  4. Catalog materials found.

Deadline: Ongoing.
