The cause

Now, there is a new invention out of Sweden called “plogging” that adds to the growing list of creative ways to help solve our plastic problem: a combination of jogging and "plocka upp", Swedish for “to pick up.” Plogging entails jogging and quickly stopping to pick up trash while you go. In the last decade, the volume of frequent runners/joggers rose approximately 25% - in the US (in numbers around 50 million). That means if all of the runners and joggers would participate in the #plogging movement in the US with only 1 plastic bottle gathered a year, they could clean up ten times more plastic waste than what ends up in the oceans every year.

if all of the runners would participate in #plogging ... they could clean up ten times more plastic waste than what ends up in the oceans
