A NEW film has been launched by a city music group in its latest battle to save the environment.

Portsmouth Music Hub’s latest effort aims to raise awareness of the damage nurdles – tiny balls of plastics – can have on marine life, seas and rivers if they enter the food chain.

It’s part of the hub’s year-long environmental campaign.

Sue Beckett, chief executive of  the 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.’
