Menus across Cali go green while McDonalds fills up your belly and your battery by Jerry Hart
Hey have you sat down at a restaurant and had the server hand you the calorie counts on their menus and indoor menu boards? You may know, California is the first state to enact such a law in the battle against America’s expanding waistline.
I’ve been tagged by Marie Calendars Restaurants who right on schedule have followed the legislation that will help Californians make more informed, healthier choices by making calorie information easily accessible at thousands of restaurants throughout the state.
Is it just me or am I hallucinating here? Will the folks that need to lose the weight, appreciate this convoluted data on an unattractive hard to read slate of paper that’s been polished with laminate.
Or, is this only going to help those that are great at already managing a green diet just stay on the straight and narrow? Who knows.
Wait, am I hallucinating again? Taco Bell goes green? Holy Mother Mary of Moses! Eat at taco bell, clean the earth. I hear they will melt down the lid, the straws and wrappers that the food comes in….and recycle it into new taco bell foods..you’ll actually be eating the garbage you produce.
Great spoof…check it out.
Taco Bell’s New Green Menu Takes No Ingredients From Nature
And hey, since we’re still hallucinating. McDonalds really does go green! Wow!
The Raleigh News & Observer reports that a new McDonald’s in Cary, North Carolina is going to be the first McDonald’s to have electric vehicle charging stations. The restaurant will have two stations that will let customers charge their cars for free while they eat. The Cary, NC McDonald’s restaurant is also under review to be LEED-certified.
The Cary McDonald’s is under review to be LEED-certified by the U.S. Green Building Council. It would become the third McDonald’s to receive certification, after restaurants in Savannah, Ga., and Chicago.
To start, the restaurant will feature two charging stations, which will sit at the front of a parking space. If the feature proves popular, McDonald’s will expand nationwide.
The charge is free.
