OK, we are not speaking some alien language here, we promise.  But a NURDLE is just as alien to this planet as the sound suggests.

Nurdle Free Oceans tells us, "Nurdles are small plastic pellets about the size of a lentil. Countless billion are used each year to make nearly all our plastic products but many end up washing up on our shores."

So, a nurdle, is basically a ubiquitous little devil of a plastic pellet that is impossible to clean up, once they are almost always inevitably spilled into our waterways.

Unbelievable, right???  Before we started on this journey into glass recycling, the ever-present nurdle invaded our psyche, and we just knew we had to do something to make a difference in this world.  It's these nurdles that are causing so much harm to our planet because they attract and concentrate background pollutants like DDT and PCBs to highly toxic levels.  Bad news.

And on top of that, they are eaten obviously by wildlife in the worlds rivers and oceans, until these little nurdles cause so much damage they kill whoever has eaten them..

In conclusion, please share this post far and wide so that we can stop this maddening problem from getting even worse.  And if you live in the state of Colorado, you can make the jump to glass recycling by visiting one of our awesome glass-only drop-off stations!!!
