The wheels of the Government are starting to move. We found a team from the Marine Dept cleaning the beach at the North Plaza of Discovery Bay. When we spoke with the officers they told us that they have been given an extensive schedule of beaches to clean, working in conjunction with the FEHD. We heard from FEHD and they will be tackling “Nurdle Ground Zero” on the East coast of Lamma on Monday. They are mobilising whatever they can to prevent the problem escalating. We need to also help as members of the public, we cannot afford to leave it all to the Government to do, hit the beaches and clean, clean, clean…….
There is one picture below, showing the different colours that Nurdles are found in. They are all clear to start with but change colour as they absorb toxins. The darker they become the more toxic! The plastic in the spill so far is still safe, but the longer we leave them the more toxic they will become.
