Yes my kids have McDonalds occasionally, so call me a bad mother. What grates me though is the lack of recycling facilities there are in McDonalds, with a Happy Meal you have cardboard, paper, plastic etc., but for an organisation this large no recycling bins.
Friends are often embarrassed that I refuse to tip all of this into their bins, and have been known to take the bits home and recycle myself! Who am I kidding that I can made a difference versus the damage this company can possibly be doing!
Recently however I was delighted to see a recycling hope for the plastic bottles, next to the normal bin. Hoorah I thought, until I opened it up to see that it went into exactly the same place as the rubbish!!!!!
I am hoping that maybe they sell their rubbish to a company to recycle for them, like I am lead to believe some airlines do? Otherwise I feel completely let down.
I have heard the argument about the cardboard being too greasy to recycle by the way, but knowing the supplier of their cardboard I know this is not true!
Will leave that with you whilst I go fume a little more!
Thanks for listening!
