This year’s earth week celebration in Cagayan de Oro aims to raise awareness and education on how to lessen the waste disposal and to segregate them properly.
To start the celebration, fun and healthy activity will be held such as plogging. This activity started in Sweden and it has become an exercise trend and beneficial to the environment. It was derived from the phrase “Plocka upp” means picking up in Swedish which involves picking up of trash plus combine it with jogging, and it’s called “Plogging”.
To date, plogging has become an activity for most environment events around the world and we will be having one here in our city.
