Morning Activity × Plogging! Join Us in Cleaning Up Shibuya while Jogging | May 12th (Sun)

Global Agents, the operating company of LIVELY HOTELS, launched the Social Good Neighbors (SGNs) project, which focuses on exchange-type rental properties called “Social Apartments”. The project will host a plogging event centered around HOTEL GRAPHY Shibuya!

Plogging is a new fitness trend where participants jog while picking up litter. The word “plogging” is a combination of the Swedish word “plocka upp” (pick up) and the English word “jogging”, and this activity has quickly spread worldwide, becoming a major trend enjoyed in over 100 countries. The more you do it, the cleaner both your body, mind, and the environment become, which is why it’s so popular. Interestingly, even before the term “plogging” existed, there were runners in Japan who picked up litter as they jogged.

Starting at HOTEL GRAPHY Shibuya and plogging around the Shibuya area, the event will conclude with participants enjoying special SGNs smoothies at the hotel while mingling and networking in the morning.

Anyone can join in! It’s an event where you can break a sweat and deepen connections with other participants. We look forward to your participation!

  • 9:30 Start plogging in Shibuya! It’s a refreshing way to start the day. Plus, you can interact with guests and Social Apartment residents.

The Social Good Neighbors project aims to encourage individuals to engage in activities that contribute positively to society. Through various initiatives under the Social Apartment umbrella, the project encourages people to start making small positive changes together in an enjoyable way. One of the regular activities within SGN is litter picking. Living in a Social Apartment often provides more opportunities for residents to appreciate the charm of their neighborhood, leading many to want to keep their community clean. Therefore, we organize community litter picking events with residents, under the motto “Social Apartments make our neighborhoods cleaner.”
