McDonald’s Canada will unveil two locations designed to reduce its environmental footprint by making its packaging more sustainable.

The restaurants, in London, Ontario and Vancouver, BC, will act as incubator locations to test new packaging options and recycling initiatives with an eye to the potential of rolling them out more widely in the future. The first innovations, which will begin testing in the coming months, include a fully re-pulpable cup for cold beverages, wooden cutlery, wooden stir sticks and paper straws.
