Nurdle Hunt & Beach Clean

Date / Time
Start date: 
Mon, 12/03/2018 - 10:00am - 12:00pm

Billions of tiny plastic pellets, known as 'nurdles' are lost into the UK environment each year. These can significantly harm marine wildlife once they make it into the sea.

The UK Government's ban on microbeads in rinse-off personal care products has begun, but we think the ban needs to be a lot tougher and include further measures to reduce all types of plastic pollution in the future.

So we are going to clean up the beach, collect as many plastic items as we can and record what we find!

Summary: 
Come along and help to clean up Crosby beach and hunt out tiny nurdles of plastic in the sand!
