Climate warning

Make your packaging more eco friendly

Fast food packaging makes so much plastic pollution. The plastic cups at McDonald’s should either be made reusable or out of recycled plastic. Why do you guys still have straws if the new lids don’t need them? Also the wrappers and packaging in general such as fry containers contain harmful PFAS pollution which is unhealthy and could cause cancer. The EPA has declared no safe limit for exposure to PFAS chemicals.

      There're lots of ecofriendly options out there in the market today,Mac Donald shouldn't give any excuses continuing to exacerbate the plastic pollution.

          Food packaging contains chemicals harmful to our health, and it creates a lot of waste, clogging our landfills and polluting our oceans.

            In terms of straws, the transition to strawless lids has been a positive step toward reducing plastic waste.

              The folks in Japan have awesome systems, called “Bring your bowl”. Just pay for whatever the amounts you want. Don’t hafta pay for label fee on wrapping or anything. You literally feel you slightly get discounted.

                  Yes this is so bad... in France McDonald's now has to use reusable cups and plates, which I think is a great thing and more countries should implement the same

                    Hi, it's true that takeaway food tends to create pollution due to its packaging, do you have any links you could share to show where you get the information on PFAS from? :)
