Welty Earth Day Plog Challenge

Kick-start your day with fresh air and bird song by plogging in honor of Earth Day, April 22! What’s Plogging, you ask–it’s a Swedish word that combines jogging (or walking) and picking up trash as a way to exercise and clean-up our neighborhoods, parks, and city. 

Join us sometime between Monday, April 19 through Sunday, April 25 for an Earth Day Plog Challenge.  Get outside, pick up trash, take a photo of your progress, and send it to development@weltycenter.org with your name(s) to register for a prize and document your haul! Let us know if it’s cool to post your photo on social media and, if you can, include what streets or neighborhood you plogged, and we’ll track our progress on a map. 

We are celebrating:

Most bags collected-Individual and Group

Most improved site (before/after photos)

Longest distance plogged

Most creative plogging photo
