: right on. what did you expect from a conglomerate like McDonald's?

A conglomerate companym is one that has multiple and entirely different products. GE is a conglomorate, they make light bulbs, plain engines, and they even have a life insurance company in Japan. McDs, on the other hand, sells food and only food, with the ocasional toy in order to promote food. They are not conglomerate.

:You (the public in general) have to know that McDonald's policy is to see a return for money spent.

If companies didn't make a profit, they would go out of business, and we(the public) would be screwed.

:There is no return to speak of being kind to the environment for them.

Sure they do. They can get a lot of enviromentalists in their stores if they hype it.

:That, my friend, is basic in funding advertising.

OK, you lost me.

McSpotlight: McDonald's also owns the UK-based Aroma coffee shop chain; they purchased the chain last week.
