What are nurdles? And what are our Million+ frisbees going to do about them?
Nurdles are small plastic pellets about the size of a lentil that are the building blocks for most plastic goods, ranging from plastic water bottles to cars. Unfortunately, they have found their way in to our oceans through transportation, effluent pipes, or industrial spillage and therefore contribute to plastic pollution.
To help you in the fight against plastic pollution, we’re bringing you Mermaid Tear Catcher™ specialised frisbees that are made to sift out nurdles, and other tiny pieces of plastic, from beach sand. And another great thing about our Million+ frisbees is that they are made from recycled plastic!
1 – Sift the beach sand through your frisbee to collect nurdles and other small pieces of plastic. If the sand is wet you might need to pour water through the frisbee.
2 – Pick out any natural items (like kelp or sea shells) and then place your nurdles in a bag or bucket so that you can collect more.
3 – Weigh your nurdles and then record your nurdle catch on the bottom of this website page: litter4tokens.co.za
4 – Drop off your Nurdles at any of these points:

We’ve partnered with beach clean-up organisations across South Africa. Attend a beach clean-up with one of these beach clean-up organisations where they will be handing out these frisbees. The first 100 people at each of these events will receive a free frisbee!
