CHUNCHEON, July 15 (Korea Bizwire) — Chuncheon city’s With Eco, a plogging program where participants pick up trash as they jog, begins this Saturday.
Plogging combines the terms ‘plocka upp’, a Swedish expression for picking up grains, and ‘jogging’.
The program first began in Sweden in 2016, spreading worldwide as a meaningful event that can take care of both one’s health and the environment.
Civil activists will also provide on-site education for students to properly recycle the trash they pick up during plogging.
