A letter to Macca's

Here is a letter I sent to McDonald's yesterday:

***


7 March 2016 Mr Andrew Gregory Managing Director/ CEO McDonald’s Australia Head Office 21-29 Central Avenue Thornleigh  NSW  2120
Dear Andrew, RE:  McDonald’s responsible use of plastic
I am writing to you regarding the use by McDonald’s Australia of plastic throwaway items. These include, but are not limited to, spoons, sticks, straws, cups, coffee cups, lids and sauce containers.
I wish to request that McDonald’s, considered a leader in the fast food industry, takes the bold step of adopting more environmentally responsible practices by discontinuing the use of these items.
There is a good range of bamboo, timber and paper products which can be used in place of plastic. A bamboo stirrer will biodegrade and bamboo is a renewable resource. A plastic stirrer will not biodegrade, and will sit in a gutter, often missed by sweepers (where there are sweepers). It may even be mistaken for food by a seabird or turtle, potentially causing great harm…
