But is seems that one fast food giant, McDonald's, has been working hard to lose that environmentally unfriendly image. And their efforts have placed them on the forefront of green in the fast food industry.
Here are some of McDonald's most recent green initiatives:
Purchasing fish products from sustainable fisheries.
Reusing fy oil for conversion to biofuels.
Working with the beef industry to reduce greenhouse gas emission and runoff pollution.
Installing solar panels and waste recovery and reuse systems in some building locations.
Striving for LEED ratings at a number of store facitilites
