Not On Your Nurdle! 

Dates: November 16, 2019 – November 17, 2019

Would you know your nurdles from your noodles? Don’t let nurdles become a hurdle!

Nurdles are tiny pieces of plastic about the size of a lentil that are increasingly being washed up on the UK’s shores. They’re the bits that nearly all of our plastic goods are made from … and our seas are full of them.  In fact, in one survey 95% of seabirds tested in the North Sea had nurdles in their stomach.

Visit us this weekend and you’ll become a true nurdles expert – and find out what you can do to stop the nurdles nuisance.
