McDonald's requires a one-euro deposit for packaging

Coincidence or not? Just in time for the World Climate Conference in Glasgow, fast food chain McDonald’s has discovered its green conscience – and is launching a reusable concept in Germany.

The United Nations Climate Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, is set to conclude later this week. The main concern there was to limit global warming to a maximum tolerable level of 1.5 °C.

Also, the program had other topics related to climate protection, for example reducing packaging waste and thus making the world a little more sustainable.

Environmental offender McDonald’s wants to be greener

Clearly, fast food giant McDonald’s has a sense of the right time. Because right at the same time, the maker of billions of environmentally harmful disposable packaging launched the green invasion.

Under the slogan “Kam Hai (Shun)!” The company is currently testing a reusable deposit system at ten German locations. Customers in the Berlin and Munich area can order drinks and desserts in reusable packaging.

one euro per package deposit raised. When returning the reusable cup to the trial restaurant, the deposit amount will be refunded in full. The chain wants to ensure that the packaging is returned to the restaurant and can be reused.

Reusable nationwide by the end of 2022

But why is the change of heart coming now? Above all, McDonald’s wants to anticipate the statutory reusable liability, which will come into force by 2023. Restaurants, snack bars and cafes then have to offer their customers a reusable option in addition to disposable packaging when selling them on the street.
