Tell people that you’re a plogger, and you’re likely to see a confused look, followed by a pause. Some will assume that it’s like blogging?

If you’re lucky, you’ll be given the opportunity to explain what plogging is and why you do it. If not, don’t worry, just walk on in the knowledge that, as a plogger, you can continue to walk tall in life.

If people ask you for more information, tell them to ‘Google’ it. Depending upon where they come from, they’re likely to find links to one of the following articles published on plogging.
