Record Your Nurdle Catch
Been nurdle hunting lately? Submit your finds.
What happens with the data?
This data will help contribute to the global picture of nurdle pollution as part of ‘The Great Global Nurdle Hunt’.
We collate the data with Fidra’s ‘The Great Nurdle Hunt’ – an international citizen science survey aimed at providing a global evidence base of plastic pellet, or ‘nurdle’, pollution; mapping out the presence of pellet pollution using volunteer submissions of nurdle finds. To find out more visit www.nurdlehunt.org.uk

What To Do With Your Nurdles?
PLEASE DO NOT PUT IN THE BIN THEY CANNOT BE RECYCLED
We ask for all nurdles to be put in a sealed container and posted to Spilltech –

Litter4Tokens has developed the innovative Mermaid Tear Catcher (MTC), a scooping device with holes specifically demarcated allowing the user to sieve the nurdles out of the dry sea or river sand. It is made from ocean-bound plastic, and all funds raised from the sales go towards the Litter4Tokens kiosks in South Africa, thereby creating a perfect, circular economy. The MTC can be ordered online at www.litter4tokens.co.za and, when not used for collecting nurdles, it doubles as a frisbee!
The DRUMPAL drums will include sponsor branding as well as clear instructions on how to collect the nurdles. Once participants have made their collection, they must take a photo and upload it to Record Your Nurdle Catch | Litter4Tokens, alongside the unique MTC code (if you have bought one), the geographic location, or the name of the lifesaving club. There will be monthly winners for the most Nurdles collected. The drums will be located at:
