McDonald's Scraps Worldwide Composting Program Because Food Won't Decompose: Grist Exclusive

Posted: Updated:

McDonald's announced this morning that it is scrapping plans for a worldwide composting initiative, Grist reported. Their decision to halt the program came after scientists at the University of California-Berkeley discovered that nothing on the McDonald's menu was compostable.

Grist also reported that you've just been APRIL FOOLED, SUCKAS.
