On Qatar National Sport Day, the Rajagiri Public School (RPS) Ploggers Club organised a campaign to create awareness about the importance of protecting the environment from pollution. Together with participating in Sport Day events organised by the Indian Sports Centre, the club members cleared the area of plastic waste thrown away by spectators during the competitions. The co-ordinator of the programme, Nisha Shahul, urged the gathering to avoid discarding used water bottles carelessly. A random quiz was also conducted among the gathering to spread the message of 'plogging'. It is an activity that originated in Sweden and is the act of combining jogging with picking trash. It has been taken up by millions across the world as it is beneficial both to the health and the environment.
