First Plogging Initiative in the North collects around 300kg of garbage
On Sunday, the 12th, around 300kg of garbage were collected in the municipality of Póvoa de Lanhoso, in Braga. The initiative, organized by DiverLanhoso in partnership with the Municipality of Póvoa de Lanhoso, the Confraternity of “Nossa Senhora do Pilar” and the Scouts of “Sobradelo da Goma”, brought together more than two dozen people next to Rocha do Pilar.
Plogging is a sport from Sweden that consists on picking up trash by taking small steps, just like jogging. This practice is already beginning to have some expression in Portugal.
DiverLanhoso revises its values in those defended by numerous environmental organizations. One of our main purposes is to awaken the general population, as well as the local population, to the need to preserve and protect the environment.
