Portsmouth Music Hub launch film to spark conversation about environmental issues
Date Created: 31st Oct 2018
THE NIGHTMARE OF NURDLES
Nurdles are pre-production pellets. They are used by industry to create the products we all use every day. If these small pieces of plastic are spilt or mishandled they can have a devastating effect on the marine life in our seas, rivers and waterways by entering the food chain.
Portsmouth Music Hub has created a film which explores the impact of nurdles on our environment. It’s all part of the Music Hub’s year-long environmental campaign which aims to harness the power of music and the arts to encourage every child in Portsmouth to think about the environment and to take steps to improve our planet, both locally and globally.
Sue Beckett, Chief Executive of Portsmouth Music Hub said: “Nurdles are not something that we encounter day to day, but the damage that this plastic is having on our environment is significant. Nurdles absorb toxins, they enter our seas and oceans, and are consumed by marine life which damages the natural food chain. Part of the Music Hub’s environmental campaign is to draw attention to key issues that are damaging our world, and hopefully, with awareness, we can all take steps to change the way we live our lives.
Nurdles is taken from Portsmouth Music Hub’s songbook ‘One World’. To see the film visit their Youtube page here
