McDonalds is taking another step towards an eco-friendly stance. They have announced the testing of a prototype paper cup that can be recycled. The new style cup, will also have a double layer to insulate against burns, and other than the material they are made from, doesn't appear to look much different from the cups they are already using.
These new environmentally friendly cups will be tested in 2000 restaurants worldwide, over 100 of them in the US alone.
