About Us


Fidra is an environmental charity based in East Lothian. It seeks to address a wide range of specific environmental issues by promoting genuinely sustainable practices, using approaches that are dynamic and responsive. Projects are primarily identified locally, but also have national and international significance.

The Great Nurdle Hunt is Fidra's first project. It aims to end further industrial plastic pellet or 'nurdle' pollution into Scottish seas.

With the support of the local plastic industry we want all companies handling nurdles in Scotland to sign the 'Operation Clean Sweep' pledge. With their help we can achieve zero nurdle loss across Scotland and challenge the rest of the UK to do the same.
