Saturday September 5, 2020

Summer’s coming apace, little by little the snow is giving way to a fine carpet of greenery, flowers and …plastic, metal, paper and cigarette ends. 
That’s why we’re suggesting a big operation to pick up the rubbish to increase your awareness, to make you aware of your responsibilities and to make our mountains even more beautiful. 

The rendez-vous is fixed for the September 5 at 8.00 am. The most athletic will be able to do some plogging, and all participants will leave with a Les Arcs Picture prize. 

We expect lots of you to come and share a great community moment !

What is plogging ?
It’s a contraction of plocka upp («picking up», in Swedish) and «jogging». The result is to take advantage of our little steps to get rid of our rubbish. A frequently used term on social media, this new activity combines a responsible act with enjoying oneself and letting off steam. A healthy mind in a healthy body. Come on, go for it !
