Start Plogging With Keep Lee County Beautiful!

[Fort Myers, FL] (December 29, 2020) Join Keep Lee County Beautiful, Inc. (KLCB) and plog across Lee County.  The word ‘plogging’ is derived from the Swedish phrase ‘plocka upp’, which refers to picking up garbage when out walking or jogging.  Starting in the New Year, KLCB will meet to plog every Wednesday from 8:00am to 9:00am at a new location.

During the pandemic there has been an increase in environmental pollution.  The use of disposable plastics has increased by about 40%, from PPE to the increase in takeout services causing more waste.

With Lee County being a coastal community eventually the majority of any loose trash will find its way into a lake, river, canal or estuary, and eventually end up in the Gulf. Preventing this from occurring is  vital to protecting our environment, the wildlife and our local waterways.

Community involvement as Lee County continues to grow is key and KLCB encourages all to do their part to keep beaches, parks, waterways, and streets safe and clean.  We can all make a difference and work together for a cleaner and greener community

Be the change in your community and start plogging with Keep Lee County Beautiful across Lee County!  One hour a week equals a big difference.  Visit the Keep Lee County Beautiful Facebook page or website at for the locations and dates.


Keep Lee County Beautiful, Inc., established in 1989, is the county’s largest volunteer-based community action and education organization. This local nonprofit forms public-private partnerships and programs that engage individuals to take greater responsibility for improving their community environments.
