Save the date in your diaries and join us this September to learn more about nurdle pollution all around the world, how nurdles impact your area and how to join calls to stop this pollution.

If you're new to the hunt, The Great Global Nurdle Hunt is our annual event, which asks organisations and individuals to organise nurdle hunts at the same time all around the world to draw attention to this issue and collect a snapshot of data on global plastic pellet pollution.


Focusing on Big Spills 

This year we will be theming the Great Global Nurdle Hunt on big spill events. We want to showcase how these big nurdle spill events, like the X-press Pearl disaster have impacted regions around the world and give communities and organisations a chance to use this platform to shout for solutions. We are hoping the event and results this year can support the countries who have submitted proposals to the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) to have pellets reclassified as dangerous goods and the wider work on global pellet solutions.
