Needed: Nurdle Hunt Volunteers
Organization: A Greener Future
Locations: Toronto, Etobicoke, Port Hope, Belleville, Hamilton, Burlington & Oakville, Ontario

Come join us for a Nurdle Hunt, a fun-filled event for all ages! Throughout October, we'll be hosting Nurdle Hunt events at various locations along the shores of Lake Ontario!

What are nurdles, you ask? Nurdles are small plastic pellets (about the size of a lentil) used by the manufacturing industry to make new plastic products, everything from phone cases to plastic bags are made of nurdles. Small and lightweight, these pellets can easily spill throughout the plastic supply chain and be lost in the environment. Nurdles can cause harm to aquatic life when they are mistaken for food and also contaminate our drinking water with microplastic pieces. They are difficult to clean up from the environment, which is why we need your help!

Together, we'll clean up the beach and search for these pesky nurdles. It's a great opportunity to make a positive impact on our environment while enjoying beautiful Lake Ontario.

Bring your friends and family, and let's make a difference! Don't forget to wear comfortable clothes and shoes, and bring your enthusiasm. We'll provide all the necessary equipment for the hunt. This event is a fantastic chance to connect with like-minded individuals and contribute to the preservation of our precious coastal ecosystem.

Join us at the beach and be part of the solution!
