The average input of plastics into the Black Sea from the Danube between 2010-2012 was roughly 4.2 tons a day (The Danube so Colourful). B. Another example is the River Lea in London. Nearly 10,000 pieces of plastic were documented in a three month study of the River Lea (Plastic Litter Threatens River Life).
There were minor violations too, such as no beard restraints being worn on dishwashing employees, employee jackets being stored on top of sacks of food, and dishes not being air dried before being place with the other clean dishes. If Texas Roadhouse does not step up and start implementing changes, I will have no choice but to find another steakhouse. I will definitely not eat there
Zhi Juin CGC1D-02 The Great Pacific Garbage Patch Begin Research The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, also known as the Pacific Trash Vortex, is a slowly-moving, gyre of marine debris that was continuously mixed by a clockwise spiral of currents and was widely dispersed in the North Pacific Ocean. This mass of plastic has the twice the size of Texas and it was predicted by a Californian sailor, surfer, volunteer environmentalist, early-retired furniture restorer and scientist – Charles Moore – that it will most likely double in size in the next ten years.
Food can be bought and wasted because of the ample amounts bought. Although, one may not give to the poor people of the world, food can be gone to compost, or can be used to make new food. Many belittle the fact that food waste is harmful to society. The first article, “U.S. throws away half of all food produce” By Suzanne Goldenberg explains how Fresh produce is often wasted in fields,warehouses,supermarkets,restaurants,and refrigerators. The second article, “How Norway is selling out-of-date food to help tackle waste” By Daniel Boffey shows A supermarket in Norway which is dedicated to selling expired and old food.
Texas is the largest state in the United States, and the only one to once be its own independent state, giving it the nickname “The Lone Star State.” It is bordered with Mexico, and lies next to the Gulf of Mexico. Since Texas is next to the gulf, it is home to many ports for international trade. However, with so much trade comes the risk of pollution to the gulf, which eventually reaches the shores of many beaches in Texas. One of the worst oil spills in Texas history was the Deepwater Horizon oil spill of 2010.
Additionally, LitterBonnie enhances the quality of life now and for future generations. Littering is very inconsiderate of others, and if communities use LitterBonnie, our earth will be much cleaner and society will be kinder. This AdaFruit® RedBot® will affect both plant and animal life, too. Littering plastic items can confuse wildlife such as sea turtles, who eat the trash, thinking it is their food, and become sick or die. Also, the polluted runoff from the litter can contaminate plants, crops, seafood, and flowers, leading to a disruption in ourlocal, and soon global, ecosystem.
It is no secret that humans have a large issue when it comes to plastic waste, as we produce over 300 million tons of plastic each year, with 50% used once and thrown away. But where does all of our plastic debris go once we discard of them in the trash? The answer, oftentimes, is the ocean. According to a UC Santa Barbara study, over 8 million tons of plastic is thrown into the ocean each year, and since 10% of our trash ends up in the ocean, 90% of which being plastic waste, it is estimated that 5 trillion pieces of plastic, weighing 250,000 tons, are floating in our oceans right now. However, when you visit your local beach, it is unlikely that you see mounds of trash washing ashore.
Attempts to replace nutrients that have been destroyed by heat with supplementary-and predominantly synthetic-nutrients can never compare nutritionally with the benefits and quality of natural, minimally treated nutrients. At present, there is no way to replace structurally altered fibers or denatured proteins. These alterations make heat-processed foods and their constituent nutrients less bio-available or beneficial, and certainly less effective in maintaining health, preventing disease, and helping the healing processes that normally follow injury. Structurally altered pet foods may actually contribute to health problems (e.g., food allergies or inflammation).
The only difference is that we can predict when they will arrive. It's shocking to think that there were four large hurricanes in just the year of 2017. All four together killed around 103 people, making 2017's hurricanes the 17th worst in the world. The world's worst hurricane occurred in 1900 in Texas. It was called Galveston Hurricane, it killed 8,000 people.
Thomas Morton’s article, Oh This Is Great, wants people to have a greater understanding on what’s going in our world. People need to understand that our ocean is a pile of trash. As Morton stated, “The ocean is downstream of everything.” Considering the fact, people are thoughtlessly tossing their trash onto the floor, are sadly ending up into the ocean- where our food chain is greatly affected by.
