Meet Mumbai’s singing and dancing plogging club; these litter-picking joggers collect plastic waste in a Mumbai park.

With music that is reminiscent of the Music Group at Shree Rajneesh Ashram in the seventies, these energetic folks combine exercise with cleaning up discarded plastic and other garbage left by lazy and sleepy people in a Mumbai park.

The word plogging originated in Sweden – it is a combination of the Swedish word for ‘picking up’  – plocka upp – and  jogging = plogging. It has now spread across the world. Carried out in Mumbai, it shows a decidedly Indian flavour.

We are the ploggers! We are the change!
