Well, perhaps a nice tidy hiking trail!
Unfortunately, not everyone thinks the same, and throughout hiking trails in Hong Kong there are pieces of rubbish littered (pardon the pun) around. So why not combine the joy of hiking with the satisfaction of making a difference?
Plogging, a combination of jogging and the Swedish term “plocka upp,” meaning pick up, is sweeping the globe – and the streets clean of garbage. – https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/plogging-sweden-rubbish-garbage-litter-exercise-health-workout-a8278656.html
You will be ‘plogging’ in and around the wonderful Ping Shan Heritage Trail. Inhabited since the late 12th Century, the Ping Shan area of Hong Kong is located in the Northwest New Territories. The trail was inaugurated in 1993, and was the first of it’s kind in Hong Kong.
Important : Please make sure to bring a reusable water container for the plog. There is a water fountain at the Ping Shan Tin Shui Wai Sports Centre, so we can top ourselves up with water during the journey!
Also make sure to bring sun protection, bug spray, suitable clothing as well as anything else you think you might need.

Time: 11am – 2pm
