Not only is fast food bad for you, it creates a ton of garbage! Just think, in one visit alone your food will come wrapped in paper, shoved into a plastic bag or paper sack that is stuffed with paper napkins, plastic straws, plastic cutlery, and plastic wrapped condiments. And you only use these items for a very, very short amount of time. After you're done eating, you toss all of that packaging right into the trash can. Did you know the biggest contributor to the waste (49%) floating in the oceans is from fast food? I know if you are accustomed to eating fast food several times in a week that completely eliminating it might be rather difficult so, lessening it is still a win. Instead of fast food, opt for wholesome meals with lots of fruits and veggies. You will find that better food comes in less packaging and you'll feel better too! :)
