Plogging, a Swedish concept is a simple workout which can be done by people on routine strolling or jogging. They have to carry cloth bags for collecting litter, mostly plastic waste, spotted on the roads and the collected waste can either be dumped in bins or handed over to sanitary workers during door-to-door waste collection. More than 3,000 people have expressed their willingness to participate in Trichy Corporation’s inaugural Plogging event on April 22.
Registration was invited from the public to participate in the initiative which will be inaugurated on the occasion of Earth Day, on April 22 . A week after the invite to register, the corporation said more than 3,000 people had assured their participation. It reached out to people through social media platforms and residents welfare associations. The corporation aims to collect at least 5-10 tonne of waste with the help of around 3,000 participants in the plogging event.
