During March, Omroep Brabant visited Breda to document our Litter Trap and shed light on the issue of nurdles. The abundance of nurdles in the rivers of the Netherlands is concerning. Nurdles are tiny plastic particles utilized as raw materials in the plastic industry. It is believed that these nurdles find their way into our waterways during the transfer between plastic producers. Moreover, marine life, including fish and birds, often mistake them for food.
For a comprehensive understanding of this matter, I recommend following the link below to watch the report by Omroep Brabant and NOS.
