McDonad’s Canada is opening two “Green Concept Restaurants” in London, Ontario, and Vancouver, British Columbia, according to a company release.

The locations will serve as incubators for new packaging options and recycling initiatives, and is part of the company’s push to shrink its environmental footprint and source 100% of fiber-based packaging from recycled or certified sustainable materials by 2020.

The locations will test recyclable lids made from wood fiber and “re-pulpable” cups for cold beverages, both firsts for Canadian QSRs, as well as wooden cutlery, wooden stir sticks and paper straws.
