COVID-19 Update: The University has changed its events policy, please check with event organizers before attending on-campus events.

Campus Clean Up #ploggingURI

Opt Outside and help keep our campus clean!

Plogging is a combination of jogging with picking up litter (merging the Swedish verbs plocka upp (pick up) and jogga (jog) gives the new Swedish verb plogga, from which the word plogging derives).

We've adopted it on campus for the months of April and October - (and added walking!)

There will be a few events on campus distributing biodegradable bags and gloves, but don't wait for that! Take a walk and help pick up litter anytime. Protect yourself with gloves, and dispose of any litter in the trash receptacles on campus.

If you would like supplies, please email us, or DM @uricampusrec and we will provide them for you, your friends, your team, your department.

Together we can keep URI beautiful!
