A new fitness craze has arrived in Lafayette. The craze is called “plogging” and it will now help rid Lafayette’s streets of clutter.

” It is a Sweedish fitness craze that has come to the United States and it’s a combination of jogging and picking up litter as you walk or jog and exercise,” Bradley Black said.

Black is the Executive Director of the Upper Lafayette Economic Development Foundation. She, along with other organizations in Lafayette made the event a success.

“To promote environmental awareness of how much we actually throw out and how much goes to waste. We have No Waste Lafayette here to analyze the litter and see what sorts of things are thrown out,” Black said.

Organizers were pleased with the turnout and hope to make this a regular event.
