Zero-Waste Fast Food?

Zero-Waste Coffee at McDonalds?


You might not believe what I am about to tell you.

Yes, it’s right, you can now get a coffee in a real mug at McCafe converted McDonald’s. I saw it with my own two eyes.

After being tortured by being pulled in a McDonald’s while on my detox I saw the unexpected. An elderly man asked for two coffees in real cups. The employee, rather grumpily, went into the back and returned with a newly washed tray of mugs. Because they have a milk/cream dispenser it is now very easy to get a zero waste coffee there! 

Just in time for free small coffee week at McDonald’s. Just drink it inside!

About stephanieough

Wife, mom, concerned citizen of the earth. Striving towards intentional living rather than blindly following. Former Education Specialist for a corporation, I have now taken a step back to spend time with my family and work closer to home. Hoping to reduce our waste through refusing, reducing and reusing so that we will not have to recycle as much. Also, I love to explore zero-waste fast food and take pictures of my sucesses. I'm a fan of British comedies like Red Dwarf and Black Adder, Kevin Smith and his movies, Asian food, documentaries, biographies and going to Las Vegas on vacation. If someone told me I could only listen to the Beatles for the rest of my life I would die happy.

  1. Wow that’s a step finally in the right direction! Too bad the worker was grumpy about it, some people won’t want to ask if they are going to get an attitude.
