The mermaids are back for 2019! For the second year running, we’ve teamed up with Green City Events to raise awareness of the problems of plastic waste and to encourage more people to reuse and recycle their plastic at home and on the go.

Throughout the summer, the mermaids will be touring running events in Wales, Bristol and Ludlow. You’ll have a chance to meet them , get your very own mermaid makeover and find out how the smallest changes can make a huge difference!
