The Great European Nurdle Hunt

Following the fantastic response from volunteers for The Great Winter Nurdle Hunt, FIDRA are pleased to announce an all new special weekend of nurdling, this time on a European scale!

When? 2nd-5th June 2017 

Where? Pick a beach, any beach! Landlocked nurdlers are also welcome to participate - we've had a few reports from river banks / lakes and would like to know more about where pellets are found inland.

How do I take part? All you have to do to take part is go on a nurdle hunt and tell FIDRA what you find! You'll be able to submit results to their website from 2nd June. The information gathered will be fed into the upcoming European Commission investigation and public consultation into microplastics, which opens next month -see www.eumicroplastics.com

FIDRA are looking for as many nurdle hunters as possible, from all over Europe (and even worldwide if you like!). Take part to show decision makers that nurdles are everywhere, and that people care about this issue!
