Nature holds beauty in every little aspect. Whether it be a butterfly gliding through the air, blades of grass swaying in the breeze, or the conversations of little birds at the crack of dawn. There is a delicate life force that needs tending to. Now more than ever, it is important to learn how we can peacefully coexist with the elements of nature and even preserve them.
At McDonald’s, we aim to strike a balance with the environment to keep that beauty intact. These are the things that make life worth living for, and sustainability is one way of taking action. A number of issues need to be dealt with first.
Plastic is a major source of concern for our environment. It disrupts the natural functioning of oceans and soil because it takes centuries to completely decompose. Single-use plastics are among the worst offenders. At McDonald’s, we have completely stopped the usage of all customer facing single use plastic from our restaurants.
Every single one of our in-house and home delivered orders are offered to our customers in a McDonald’s paper bag. The paper bag packaging is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). The biodegradable and recyclable nature of a McDonald’s paper bag goes a long way in safeguarding nature.
The McDonald’s paper bag signals the change in approach towards healthier practices and it doesn’t stop there. Its contents are just as good as the bag they come in. There are numerous healthy McDonald’s options in our “real food real good” range, which has no added MSG, no artificial flavors, or no artificial colors. McDonald’s menu consists of wholesome and delicious ingredients, from locally grown produce, and other initiatives focused on the reduction of our carbon footprint. We also provide Allergen & Nutritional information so that you can make more conscious decisions.
We also use carefully designed glass bottles that can be recycled and reusable, or even be used for your personal consumption. We believe that mindful steps to reduce plastic and single use plastic usage can greatly benefit nature and even us as a species.
You can rest easy knowing that your consumption impacts the earth in a positive way as #WestlifeGoesGreen. Our paper bags might look simple but they hold the best of intentions. You can order the healthy McDonald’s options from our outlets or the McDelivery® app and McDelivery® website and receive the order in a McDonald’s paper bag.
