The founder of Nurdle, Joshua Beech, was in his final year at University, when he decided to escape the stresses of revision by venturing to the nearest beach – Whitsand Bay in South East Cornwall. Nothing could’ve prepared him for the sight that he saw.
“Billions of micro plastic nurdles washed in
with every wave.”
It was the most shocking environmental issue Josh had ever seen, and it was only 10 miles from his home.
