On the day of the event, 169 people participated, the largest number of participants in the history of plogging. This time, special ambassadors participated in each course and did plogging together. Many of the participants were fans of the Special Ambassadors, and it was a great success, as they said it was a valuable experience where they could work up a sweat while picking up street garbage together on each course.
After picking up trash, participants said things like “nice!” and “thank you!” as the participants naturally became friendly, creating a fun atmosphere and deepening their interactions with each other. Additionally, the weather was perfect on this day, and the
participants’ expressions showed that they were having fun.
During this plogging event, all participants were able to collect a whopping 90.1kg of trash. We will work to improve the marine litter problem by continuing to expand the circle of efforts to reduce municipal litter.
