How to Clean up Nurdles

Our oceans are teeming with life and are vital to the health of our planet, but they are facing an alarming threat – plastic pollution. One of the most concerning aspects of this pollution is the presence of nurdles, tiny plastic pellets that wreak havoc on marine ecosystems. In this article, we will explore the importance of cleaning up nurdles and introduce our innovative solutions like the Nurdle Trommel, Kärcher Micro-Vacs, and Nurdle Machine, all of which play a crucial role in helping us tackling this environmental challenge.

Understanding Nurdles and Their Impact

Nurdles are small plastic pellets, typically no larger than a lentil. Despite their size, they pose a significant threat to marine life and the overall health of our oceans. These tiny pellets are the raw materials used to manufacture plastic products, but they often end up in our oceans due to mishandling, improper storage, and accidental spills. Once in the water, nurdles can be mistaken for food by marine animals, leading to ingestion and potential entanglement.

How You Can Make a Difference

While these innovative solutions play a crucial role in addressing nurdle pollution, individuals can also contribute to the cause. Here’s how:

  1. Participate in Beach Cleanups: Join local beach cleanup events to help remove nurdles and other plastic debris from shorelines. When we are looking for volunteers, we will post about any Nurdle cleanup events on our social media accounts.
  2. Spread Awareness: Educate others about the impact of nurdles on the environment and the importance of responsible plastic use.
  3. Reduce Plastic Consumption: Cut down on single-use plastics and encourage the use of sustainable alternatives.
  4. Support Organizations: Contribute to organizations like that are dedicated to researching, raising awareness, and implementing solutions for plastic pollution.

The Nurdle Trommel: A Game-Changer in Nurdle Cleanup

The Nurdle Trommel is a revolutionary tool designed to efficiently separate nurdles from beach sand. This innovative piece of equipment works by utilizing a rotating drum that sifts through sand and other debris, leaving nurdles behind. We then recycle the collected nurdles, preventing them from entering the ocean. This process not only aids in cleaning up beaches but also contributes to data collection, helping researchers better understand the extent of the nurdle pollution problem. Find Out More

Kärcher Micro-Vacs: Sucking Up Nurdles with Precision

Thanks to the generosity of Karcher, we have another remarkable solution for tackling nurdle pollution, the Kärcher Micro-Vacs. These handheld vacuum cleaners are specially designed to pick up nurdles from hard-to-reach places, such as crevices in rocks and coastal infrastructure. Their small size and precision suction make them effective tools for cleaning up nurdles in areas that may be inaccessible to larger cleanup equipment. The collected nurdles can then be recycled or safely disposed of, preventing them from re-entering the marine environment. Find Out More

The Nurdle Machine: From Pollution to Innovation

Meet the Nurdle Machine: a groundbreaking invention built to tackle the urgent problem of microplastic pollution. This innovative technology offers a practical solution, effectively reducing microplastic waste in various important situations. These include tasks like cleaning up tiny plastic particles, quickly responding to pellet spills, containing accidents on container ships, preventing plastic pellets from escaping at production sites, collecting scientific data for study, and managing large-scale environmental cleanup efforts.


Nurdle pollution is a pressing issue that requires immediate attention and action. The Nurdle Trommel, Kärcher Micro-Vacs, and Nurdle Machine are innovative tools that offer effective ways to clean up nurdles and prevent them from further harming our oceans. By combining technological advancements with individual efforts, we can work towards a cleaner and healthier marine environment for generations to come. Remember, every small action counts in the fight against plastic pollution.
