I am a self confessed Nurdle nerd!
This is me.........
My name is Claire. I'm a sea obsessed teacher and environmental educator. I have always loved the ocean and grew up in beautiful Pembrokeshire. I have been a beach cleaner for years, but discovered nurdles and microplastics a few years ago. As a teacher I started to investigate the problem and share what I was finding with my children and my class and wrote Nurdle to spread the story as far as I could.
This website is a collection of all of the ideas and resources that I find on my journey.
I love the Sea...
I go to the beach whenever I can to swim, paddle board, walk, clean, breathe and just relax.
I want my children to enjoy the beaches that I remember from my childhood, with sea, sand, shells and wildlife. NOT plastic!
The ultimate mindful activity with added feel good!
There are many reasons to undertake a beach clean. There is the mindful act of collecting things in the outdoors, the feel good factor of making a difference, the teamwork involved with taking part in an organised beach clean, or a beach clean for scientific purposes.
Whatever your reason, whatever the beach, the time of year or the weather have a go. I guarantee you will LOVE it!
