Cleveland Plogs East 185th!

There was such a great turnout at the Big Clean on Saturday April 24th that we decided to postpone our April plogging cleanup on East 185th! Now we’re heading over to East 185th this month to make sure the street stays clean!

On Wednesday May 26th at 6pm, ploggers will clean up East 185th and surrounding streets before wrapping up around 730pm. We will be set up outside the Cleveland Brewery (777 East 185th St.) with bags, gloves, water, and hand sanitizer.

In order for everyone to keep their distance, groups of 1-2 people will be heading out on different routes. Masks are encouraged when meeting to pick up supplies. Once everyone has picked up trash on their route, we’ll meet back up outside the Brewery for a socially distant but fun plogging photo.

Ploggers (of appropriate age) are welcome to stick around for a refreshing post plogging beverage at the Cleveland Brewery

We hope to see you there – rain or shine!

Need a plogging refresher for 2021? Plogging is a fitness and litter cleanup craze from Sweden that is quickly spreading throughout the world and right here in Collinwood. Plogging involves a combination of jogging and picking up trash along your running route using a small bag to collect the litter you find along your route. Plogging is great exercise and a great opportunity to meet new people and make a positive impact on our environment and our neighborhood! Check out – City Lab – Pick Up Trash While You Exercise. It’s Called Plogging
