Ever struggled to spot a nurdle in the sand?

As this new report by the Surfrider Foundation Europe highlights, in some locations across Europe, it can be difficult to spot sand among the nurdles! 

Surfrider's new report highlights 5 examples of recent nurdle pollution events across Europe. Some of these are specific spill incidents, such as loss of a shipping container at sea, while others are evidence of more long-term leaks from sites handling huge volumes of these plastic pellets every day.

The detailed case studies demonstrate why we need to tackle nurdle pollution at source, at each stage of the plastics supply chain.
