"McDonald's" Stop wasting paper

This petition had 921 supporters

Plastic, in many places, is being used less & being replaced with paper.

Recycling paper is one of the most common practises in the world.

However, when paper is recycled, the process filters out waste substances such as ink dyes, paper fibres, cleaning chemicals etc, known as paper sludge.

Sludge is disposed of in landfills or burnt.

This is one of the biggest contributors to the pollution of water as large amounts of heavy metals & toxic chemicals seep into ground water, risking poisoning aquatic life & the human race too.

The best way to help our planet would be to reduce paper use as much as possible.

McDonalds aims are high to stop waste & recycle up to 100% of their paper & card. However, any that has oil or food residue on is unfit for recycling therefore likely to go to landfill. 

Most cafés & restaurants use re-usable plates & cups whilst eating in.

Therefore we are asking McDonalds to do the same as of immediate affect.
