Nurdles Sound Cute But Really Pollute


Nurdles are the tiny little pieces of plastic used by factories to make plastic things. They are shipped around the world and some of them go astray. Because plastic takes a long time to break down, nurdles are increasing in number and spreading through the oceans, looking just like bit of food for fish and other marine creatures. It would be nice if fish could process them as in today’s cartoon, but in reality we should be making sure they don’t get into our oceans and waterways instead.
