Event description
Get fit and make a difference to our local environment through Green Hour's Plogging programme!

About this event

Green Hour's Plogging initiative aims to get as many people as possible from all backgrounds, abilities and ages involved in environmentalism. Whether you are a fitness fanatic or simply want to burn a few extra pounds, we have something for everyone, all whilst helping green our city and make new friends along the way!

Who are the Hong Kong Ploggers

Hong Kong has a huge trash problem, that is no secret.

Whether you are traversing through a country park, relaxing at a beach or walking through the busy metropolis, it is impossible to avoid waste.

Unfortunately, a lot of rubbish gets neglected until it is too late. Contrary to what many people may think, even waste in the city centre, through being washed into the gutter, can end up in the ocean.

Plogging is a fun activity you can join with your friends to fight back against plastic pollution in urban areas, meet new people and get fit in the process!

Our events are almost exclusively in urban areas within a stones throw from an MTR station. This is to encourage people of all backgrounds to join without needing to commit to a long travel time to and from the event.

Why join a plogging event?

RAISE SELF-ESTEEM

It gives you the chance to get over yourself and feel better while taking care of nature and reinforcing your environmental awareness.

IT IMPROVES PERFORMANCE AND HELPS SHED WEIGHT

When we run, we burn calories, but we also do so when we finish exercising. We increase our energy and physical ability by improving the body's oxygenation, It lowering the risk of heart problems, increases lung capacity and improves digestion.

STRENGTH IN UNITY

Through Plogging with Green Hour individuals practice typical sporting values such as companionship, solidarity, effort and perseverance at the same time as emphasising their commitment to the environment.
