Plogging is Sweden's latest fitness craze. The eco-friendly sport combines jogging and cleaning up the environment. More and more volunteers are running through parks and woods, and picking up the trash they find on the way.
The Swedish jogging trend, which is just as good for the environment as it is for your body, is taking off around the world. DW's Anabela Linke hit the streets of Cologne to find out what all the fuss is about.
The UK is building so many rubbish-burning facilities that it may be impossible for the country to meet its recycling targets. It's a problem across incinerator-crazed northern Europe - and could expand the trash trade.
You may think of Germany as a recycling mecca - but the country is the number-one producer of packaging waste, and a top per capita trash producer in Europe. And curbing that is trickier than it seems.
