Colleen Hughson

Good Will Nurdle Hunting

 Finalist in the 2019 Premier's Sustainability Awards – Environmental Volunteering category

Millions of nurdles (plastic resin pellets) pollute our local beaches, contaminating marine and bird life.

Colleen Hughson contacted specialist organisations and researchers for advice on the best way to collect, count and organise ocean plastic data. She posted information and recruited volunteer businesses and individuals, largely through social media, who have, so far, collected more than 650,000 nurdles, showing the way for all beachside communities and helping protect our beautiful marine environment from micro-plastics pollution.
