Recycle to keep Wales Running
How can bananas and plastic bottles help keep Wales running?
Whilst the runners needed lots of energy to make their way around the course, the things that they (and you) recycle could help to create and save energy.
In many places in Wales and the UK, banana peels, when recycled, are taken to a special processing plant and turned into energy to power our homes, local communities... AND some of Wales' most loved landmarks.
We use around 95% less energy to make products from recycled materials than raw materials. Recycled plastic bottles can also be transformed into all sorts of fabulous new things such as t-shirts and fleeces, as well as new bottles. Find out more

It was great to chat to so many of you at the Runners' Village on Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd October
We teamed-up with Brecon Carreg and our sister campaigns - Love Your Clothes and Love Food Hate Waste in the ‘Run Refuel Recycle’ marquee. We hope you enjoyed the action-packed programme of games, competitions, photo booths, upcycling demos, craft workshops and lots more!
