Nurdle hunt highlights plastic pollution

‘What on earth is a nurdle?’, you may be asking. Nurdles are small plastic pellets about the size of a lentil, which attract and concentrate background pollution like DDT and PCBs to highly toxic levels and can end up in the food chain when eaten by fish, birds and other marine animals.
