The Plastic Runner
The Plastic Runner (TPR) are a social enterprise born out of Karin’s passion for running and the environment. Since 2018, TPR have been facilitating inclusive plogging events. What is plogging? Simple—the action of running while picking up trash! In a nutshell, TPR helps the planet while assisting participants in staying active outside. How cool is that?
TPR use these events as a way to educate and create awareness about the impacts of litter on our surroundings. So far, TPR have organised more than 25 events across Victoria and Sydney, reaching over 300 volunteers, and collecting about 750 kilograms of litter. Additionally, they became finalists at the Keep Victoria Beautiful Awards 2019 in the Litter Prevention Category.
