“Since 2015, recycling units have been installed in over 1,000 of our UK restaurants, enabling our customers and employees to easily separate packaging for recycling," Paul Pomroy, McDonald’s UK CEO, told BuzzFeed.
The restaurant will also start keeping straws behind counters, meaning you'll have to ask a cashier if you want one.
Customers are pretty pleased with the news.
Some organizations want the change to be implemented more widely.
While others think it's an insufficient, half-assed step.
TBH, as long as the new biodegradable straws don't disintegrate when faced with the mighty force of a McDonald's milkshake, we think this is a pretty good development.
