McDonald’s Might Phase Out Foam Beverage Cups

[ 0 ] May. 9, 2012 | SBO Editor

In response to a 2011 shareholder resolution filed by shareholder advocacy organization As You Sow, McDonald’s Corporation confirmed that it is taking a step toward the possible phase-out of polystyrene foam beverage cups.

The company has notified As You Sow that, “McDonald’s is currently testing a double-walled fiber hot cup, as the company continues to seek more environmentally sustainable solutions. The test is in approximately 2,000 restaurants in the U.S., primarily on the West Coast. The objective of this test is to assess customer acceptance, operational impact and overall performance.”
