A group of joggers in Jeddah have started a new initiative that combines both the promoting of wellbeing and helping reduce the city’s waste. That’s right.

Plogging is the new thing and an Instagram page by this little community had been set up on Instagram under the name Hejaz Ploggers.

Plogging (v.) – collecting trash while jogging/walking

The ‘Ploggers’ meet on a weekly basis, sometimes three days out of the week in different areas around Jeddah. Announcements on their meet-up spots with other team-members are usually shared via their social media account on Instagram.

Their main goal is to create social change that not only nurtures healthy living but results in a litter-free environment too

Admirable, really. Just imagine if other cities or more countries took on the same approach. Joining might be a good idea for a newbie in Jeddah or someone looking to kickstart their cardio health.

Plus, you get to meet new people who are as like-minded and care about the environment and their health as you do.

If you’re interested in joining, all you’re asked to bring are…

  • Plastic bags (prefferrably a used one, no need to purchase new ones)
  • gloves
  • and, a smile.
