Nurdle – Tackling Micro Plastic Pollution. Tour 1 Highlights.
In June, Nurdle embarked on their first tour – taking our new revolutionary microplastic removal machine (The Basking Shark) for a cleanup mission on ‘non public’ beach cleans.
We cleaned 9 beaches with our Trommels and new Machine and removed millions of pieces of plastic from the coastline.
The following video features the highlights of our trip around the South West UK!
We are planning another tour in 2020 and hope that this one can be public. The places we are visiting are vastly polluted and we could really do with volunteer help to make sure we remove the largest amount that we possibly can.
Please like and share this video so we can get as many hands on deck as possible!!!
Microplastics accumulate over time on beaches and there are still question marks around the return rate of these plastics on the coastlines. We’re doing some interesting research around this and look forward to presenting it to you over the next 12 months.
Thankyou so so much to everyone who has supported us to date. Whether thats a like, share, owning a Trommel, contributing to our Crowdfunder, or one of our fantastic sponsors!
We can’t wait to get back out there cleaning the environment… but for now… what do we do with all this plastic hmm…?
