In 2011, Josh Trautwein was working as a nutrition educator in Boston, He learned that the neighborhood’s only grocery store was closing for a year of repair. The families were having a tough time finding another nearby market that sold fresh produce.
Residents of Trutwein’s Boston community are not alone when it comes to lacking supermarkets that sell fresh and healthy food. According to the United States Deparment of Agriculture (USDA), 17% of Americans lived more than half a mile fom a supermarket in 2017. The USDA uses the term “food deserts” to describe neighborhoods that lack access to nutritious food.
Trautwein began to imagine a new kind of market, an oasis（绿洲）for communities in need. In 2013, he teamed up with Annika Morgan to launch Fresh Truck, a school bus that functions as a grocery store on wheels. Now, with two mobile markets on the road, Fresh Truck provides communities in the Boston area with year-round access to fresh produce such as apples, carrots and eggplants at 17 locations.
But Morgan says the term “food deserts” doesn’t paint a full picture. “The idea of food deserts implies that there is no food around” at all, she says, “when in reality there are a lot of barriers that prevent access.” These barriers include the high cost of fresh produce and people’s lack of familiarity with the produce that is available.
Getting state and local officials enthusiastic about food issues is one way to remove these barriers, says Anne Palmer. Her group campaigns for the need for policies that connect people with healthy food. “It’s been fun to watch commmnities use food as a tool to organize,” Palmer says. “The best thing about an issue like this is that you can do something about it.”

The BBC series Blue Planet Ⅱ revealed the seriou effects of plastic polution on marine wildife,with evidence showing plsstic in ocean waters thousands of miles from land and birds feeding micro-plastics to their young.
Researchers estimate that more than 8.3 billion tons of plastic has been produced since the 1950s and about 60% of that has ended up in the natural environment. The UN predics that if the rate of waste production continues, by 2050 our oceans will carry more plastic than fish and an estimated 99% of seabirds will have taken plastic.
Fortunately, attitudes are changing in the manufacturing industry. Many famous brands promise in their mission staterments to limit waste.
