文字稿//Plastic Pyramid Protests Pollution
Egypt is a country in the north of Africa. It has sandy deserts, a big river
called the Nile, snappy crocodiles, and lots of huge pyramids!
Most of their pyramids were made long ago, in ancient times, out of big stone
But now, a new pyramid has been built in Egypt. One that is quite different…
The bricks are big, but they're not made of stone. Instead, they're made of
trash! It's taller than a three-story building!
It weighs 20 tons… that's the same as three elephants!
它有 20 噸重，跟三頭大象差不多！
All the trash used to make these bricks was taken from the river Nile. Sadly,
the Nile is filled with trash. It's very polluted.
The pyramid's builders don't just want to clean the Nile, they want to clean
the whole planet…
They hope to put teams of cleaners all over the world. Their job will be to
clean the earth five days a week, every week, every year, for the next 100
A huge pyramid made of trash, and cleaners for 100 years! I wonder if they'll
clean my bedroom for me too…
