The Great Global Nurdle Hunt 2022

This year The Great Global Nurdle Hunt will run from Tuesday 20th September to Sunday 17th October.

Firstly what are nurdles?

Nurdles are very small plastic pellets that are used in the production of a host of different products. The problem is when they are accidentally spilled and end up in the sea.

You can take part this year by:

  1. Organising a nurdle hunt
  2. Spreading the word on plastic pellet pollution
  3. Using the data from this map
