Bring Plogging to the 2028 Olympic Games in Los Angeles!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Silk, America’s No. 1 plant-based beverage brand, believes plogging would make a perfect addition to the 2028 Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles, which is seeking to become the most sustainable Games in modern history. The environmentally friendly sport, which combines jogging and picking up litter, originated in Sweden just a few years ago and has attracted participants around the globe. The hashtag #plogging has been used more than 55,000 times on Instagram, plogging groups have formed in cities worldwide and various environmental organizations have endorsed it.

The first step toward making plogging an Olympic event is showing the Los Angeles Organizing Committee that there is widespread support for the eco-friendly sport so they may include it in their events proposal for review by the Olympics Programme Commission. Our goal is to earn 25,000 signatures.

Additionally, we are inviting supporters to get out and plog in their community on Earth Day on Monday, April 22, and show the waste they collected and disposed of from their outing on social media with the hashtag #PlogForProgress!

I started this petition because...
Silk is America’s No. 1 plant-based beverage brand and a proud environmental steward. As part of the B Corp Movement, we view business as a force for good–which now includes the promotion of the great physical and environmental activity, plogging.

On Earth Day, we also want to encourage ploggers everywhere to make even more progress by sorting the trash they collect and recycling items based on local recycling program rules—a small act that makes a big difference!

Silk is committed to sustainability through meaningful action:

• Silk is part of the world’s largest Certified B Corporation®. As part of the B Corp Movement, Silk views business as a force for good. B Corps meet rigorous standards of verified social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability, and Silk will continue to work towards raising the bar as the leading plant-based beverage company.

• Producing a half gallon of Silk takes 80% less water than a half gallon of dairy milk*. Plus, the brand balances all the water used in its own manufacturing plants to make all of its products, restoring it back to nature. For example, Silk supports a groundwater recharge program in drought-stricken California, and it also partners with Change the Course to help preserve the ecological health of the Colorado River basin.

• Silk is actively working toward using paperboard for its cartons that’s certified by the Forest Stewardship Council and the Rainforest Alliance. The brand’s cartons are recyclable, and so are its creamer bottles and the cups for its yogurt alternatives.

*Based on a 2013 Water footprint assessment conducted by Silk for soymilk, almondmilk and coconutmilk using the Water Footprint Network methodology, ISO 14046 framework, and the average annual consumption of Silk by U.S. households.
