What a load of rubbish!!

It's difficult to believe that years of people working hard to fight pollution and take action the environment, we still have a long way to go before we succeed.

Oceanographers have discovered a huge ‘plastic soup’ made from rubbish floating in the Pacific Ocean. This island of rubbish has been growing slowly for over 60 years and is now so big it goes from California to Hawaii and nearly to Japan. It everything you could imagine, from plastic bags to children's toys and even plastic swimming pools!

The ‘Great Garbage Patch’ as it's sometimes called, causes of problems. One of these is the chemicals it produces in the sea. These chemicals and small pieces of plastic are now appearing in fish, and obviously, this means the plastic-filled fish could get our dinner plates!

It’s not all bad news . At the moment, a conversation group is investigating if the 100 million tons of waste can be turned into fuel and used in a positive way.

Let’s hope they take action behind the ‘plastic soup’ now before it gets any bigger!

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

Food Firsts

How much do you know about the history of some of your favorite foods? Do you know when people in England started cooking curry dishes? Do you know in which country pizzas or hamburgers were first made? The facts might surprise you.

Many people think the English found out about curry from people in India in the 1600s. In reality, wealthy English people were eating dishes made with curry spices hundreds of years before British ships traveled to India. Cooks of wealthy English families during the time of King Richard I were making curry dishes, and in fact, the word “curry” can be found in an English language cookbook as far back as 1377.

As for pizza, this dish was probably first made in Persia (what is now Iran). The Persians were eating round, flatbread with cheese in the 500s. That was nearly 1,000 years before pizza appeared in Naples, Italy!

Finally, let’s look at the truth behind hamburgers. Many people think hamburgers are American food. However, according to some stories, hamburgers came from Hamburg, Germany. A German named Otto Kuasw created the first hamburger in 1891. Four years later, German sailors introduced hamburgers to Americans.

Where foods come from isn’t nearly as important as how they taste; as long as they are delicious! So, go get some of your favorite food and dig in.
