By 2025, McDonald’s and other fast foods are planning to use recyclable or renewable materials in a package that will be put in recycling bins in restaurants. “Our ambition is to make changes our customers want and to use less packaging”, said a McDonald’s sustainability officer. Trump appointee may give McDonald’s a break in landmark labor cause. Currently around 64% of its packaging meets the standard of not using packaging that contributes to deforestation, and its plans to reach 100% by 2020. McDonald’s began purchasing sustainable beef in 2016, and its plan to completely eliminate foam packaging by the end of 2018. McDonald’s CEO is modernizing the customer’s burger experience and trying to upgrade a better experience with touchscreen ordering kiosks and table service in some locations.
