Keeping pellets where they belong – and out of our ocean
Nurdles spills at sea and on land are just as dangerous and damaging to the marine ecosystem as an oil spill, yet there are no fines or accountability measures in place for industries when this happens.
Pellet loss is preventable. To stop nurdles from entering the environment we must make sure that all pellet handlers improve handling, labelling, packaging and policies for improved transportation so that pellets do not escape in the first place.
Nurdles are, essentially, solidified oil. It is imperative that they are accorded the same treatment as other toxic substances.Take action
