With the willingness to do a not so glamorous task, armed with a trash bag and a glove, our members and their Mini Warriors have set out to make a small, but meaningful difference in their communities. It is no surprise that brown commissary bags seem to be our chapter's choice for collecting the trash; we are military families after all. Check out how many bags of trash have been collected because of Stroller Warriors plogging! Instead of running right past the litter they see along their routes, these Warriors are choosing to clean up the area instead.
favorite run locations, on the water, that is currently undergoing construction.
They say San Diego is one dirty city... especially around Mission Bay, but they enjoy doing their part to help clean it up. Here they are plogging at De Anza Cove!
Although not plogging... all three of our Hawaii chapters, SW Kaneohe Bay, SW Pearl Harbor and SW Schofield Barracks, regularly participate with 808 Cleanups to help clean up their local beaches.
Lastly, but certainly not least, we are excited for our SW Fort Worth Chapter who recently “adopted a spot,” through the city, at one of their regular run locations. They will be responsible for keeping their adopted spot clean throughout the year. Way to be committed to helping clean up litter on a regular basis!
Thank you Stroller Warriors for making a difference in your local community and ultimately for our world; one bag of litter at a time. Keep up the great work - we are proud of you and the example you are setting for our Mini Warriors!
Have YOU been plogging?! If not, encourage your local Stroller Warriors Chapter to join the fun or simply bring a bag and glove on your next neighborhood run and share your adventures with us. We'd love to hear about it!
