Mcdonald’s Is Finally Ditching One of the Worst Environmental Offenders
McDonalds recently served up some McGood News -- by the end of this year they will be phasing out the use of foam containers in all of their stores worldwide. Joining the ranks of Dunkin' Donuts and Jamba Juice, who have also banned styrofoam from their production lines. Additionally, McDonalds plans on using 100% recycled fiber-based materials for all of their packaging by 2020. Currently, only half of the restaurants’ packaging is collectively made up of the eco-friendly materials. San Francisco has already banned styrofoam from being sold within city limits – so hopefully it's only a matter of time before the rest of the world follows suit. Also, hopefully McDonalds keeps the McGood News coming and eventually announces they cut ties with factory farming.
