There is no second guessing the fact that there is only one earth that needs our attention, one that needs to be cared for. Each of the environmental hazards like different kinds of pollution, population explosion, improper waste disposal, deforestation, etc. have led to global warming and resulted in hazardous effects on the environment.

Keeping Waste Management in Check: McDonald’s – Westlife explores ways in which available resources can be reused to help manage waste better.McDonald’s environmentalinitiatives include reusing cooking oil for the production of 100% biodiesel program that has resulted in creating biodiesel and water from pollution due to waste cooking oil.
