All Week

Q

PLOG, PLIKE, PLALK

Join Keep Duluth Clean for a week of cleaning up our city while we jog, bike, and walk around town.

Plogging is a mash-up of jogging and the Swedish term “plocka upp,” which means “pick up.” The idea boils down to picking up litter while you jog. Other variations include “plalking” —walking while picking up litter—and “pliking” (biking and litter cleanup).
