Take a look at this article. There's some interesting statistics.

"The nurdle hunters: is combing UK beaches for tiny bits of plastic a waste of time?"

Until recently, I thought the problem with tiny bits of plastic in the oceans was the result of larger pieces plastic degrading. I had had no idea that microplastics in the seas and on beaches are often the raw product going into the oceans as these tiny beads or nurdles. I agree with the writer of the article that the point of collecting them is to gather data in the hope that the information can be used to campaign for and bring about an end to the way nurdles are dumped or lost at sea.
