Nurdles on the beach
What is the problem with cling film? – BeeBee Wraps
film is made by melting nurdles (tiny plastic pellets) and mixing it with additives. Nurdles’ small size and the transportation, handling methods used mean millions of these pellets are spilled in factories every year, and are washed straight into storm drains and out to sea. Nurdles resemble fish eggs so are frequently eaten by marine creatures and birds with harmful consequences. The plastic remains in their stomachs and toxins enter the food-chain. This infographic from nurdle hunt summarises the problem with nurdles.
