At first glance, I am sure you are asking, what the heck are Plogging Gloves.
I completely understand since I was unaware until we had a request for some recommendations on Plogging Gloves… so let me explain more so everyone is aware and informed…. After all that’s my job at GO GLOVES to keep you informed on the newest and latest information on gloves. I am surprised that I was unaware about a need for these types of gloves by now but the growing interest in gloves that could be used in the plogging activity and efforts became particularly important to me.
This is a new and exciting category of gloves that we are very proud to participate in on a world-wide basis. We even established a new site navigation category for these gloves which is provided below.
Before I discuss the gloves that we supply to these forward thinking and very earth-conscious people, let me provide you some background on this growing movement on how this wonderful activity became a very popular and a growing sporting and exercising phenomenon around the world. It’s nice and refreshing.
You can thank me later for bringing this to your attention and even my wife, who jogs daily is “in” now once she learned about this great effort and earth conscious concept. I also suggest you investigate a local group of runners who are very active in this new “plogging” movement. I will provide some links at the end of this post that maybe helpful.
Now for the low down on Plogging Gloves……..
Plogging Gloves are gloves used in the popular sport of Plogging that helps reduce plastic and debris pollution. These joggers pick up litter while jogging which promotes exercise and environmental care at the same time. It is estimated, according to Wikipedia, that ~2,000,000 people plog daily in 100 countries and some plogging events have attracted over 3,000,000 participants.
You can look up “Plogging” on Wikipedia on your own for more information. However, it all started in Sweden around 2016 and spread to other countries in 2018, following increased concern about plastic pollution.
Therefore, since we always try to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to new gloves and new glove issues, we have entered the Plogging arena with GO Plogging Gloves. The glove themselves are not brand-new glove models but they are unique gloves which lend themselves to Plogging due to their special features that people need to protect their hands. The gloves that we list in the Plogging Glove category were originally developed for special uses in the work and consumer glove markets, and due to their special features makes some of them very useful and appropriate for Plogging users and their needs.
GO Plogging Glove Features: Since these gloves are principally used while jogging, they must have these features.
These features include:
- Being light weight
- Very form fitting
- Breathable to reduce perspiration
- Have a good grip to easily pick up debris and litter
- Offer high durability for a longer glove life
- And in some cases, also offer cut resistance in the case of broken glass and sharp metal from tin cans, etc.
- I would also like to mention that the gloves we offer are also washable since they will become dirty, and you will want to re-use them from time to time rather than discard them to save money.
Note that we also include a durable Ambi-Dex Grippaz Engage Disposable Glove in this category which do not have some of the features mentioned above but some people may want or need a fully coated glove like a disposable glove if they need some protection from liquids or chemicals. The Grippaz Disposable Model we list are more durable than your typical disposable glove and have a great grip and offer some protection from common chemicals and liquids.
Another nice feature that many joggers prefer to have is high visibility. We have added a few hi-vis gloves for this preference, and we have even included a nice pink model for the ladies.
I would also like to emphasize that since we are a company that specializes in gloves, the gloves that we have listed in the GO Plogging Glove category are special and they are not commonly available in your local hardware or sporting goods shop.
