Plastics are so passe

Well, for their UK branches at least. But we’re hoping this movement spreads like wildfire ASAP until it reaches our shores. This comes on the heels of the fast food giant’s steps towards reducing plastic waste and sourcing their packaging from renewable sources.

News outlets claim that the changes in packaging will reduce about 485 metric tons of plastic every year. They are set to be in motion by September, a year after Mcdonald’s also made the decision to let go of their plastic straws in exchange for something more sustainable.

Way to go, McDonald’s! We’ll be waiting!
