Low Tide is at 15:42.
What do you need?
Bring a jar with you to collect nurdles in (i.e an old jam jar/spice jar)
We will provide gloves
What are Nurdles?
Nurdles, or plastic pellets, are small bits of plastic about the size of a lentil (around 2-3mm wide). These pellets are the building blocks of the plastics industry and are used to make all the plastic products you use and find today; from water bottles to car parts. These Nurdles are often spilled and lost at sea and wash up on shores all around the globe. Once at sea, these microplastics can cause harm to marine life where they are often mistaken for food and eaten.
We need to help collect and report our Nurdle findings.
