Nurdles, or “pre-production plastic pellets,” are a little-known component of all our plastic products. Polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene, polyvinyl chloride, and other plastics are used to create nurdles. Depending on the density of the pellets and whether they are in freshwater or saltwater, they will sink or float when released into the environment from plastic plants or when transported around the world as raw material to companies. Nurdles come in a variety of colours, sizes and shapes. Due to their size and appearance, they are often mistaken for food by seabirds, fish, and other species. These disintegrate into nanoparticles in the environment, which pose more complex risks.
