What is a Nurdle?

Nurdles are made from synthetic substances

The word “nurdle”as coined in 1994 for the  first time by a journalist covering a loss of plastic material in the  United States. Nurdles, also know as mermaids tears, is a small plastic pellet which curves as feed stock in the manufacture of plastic products.

Nurdles are mostly made from synthetic substances, some even derived from petrochemical products which give them high mouldability for the manufacture of familiar plastic products.
