Charge Your E-Vehicle at McDonalds… Soon

McDonalds announced that it was building the “first green restaurant” in Cary, North Carolina.
Gizmodo reported that McDonald’s says the facility will not only be built using all green construction materials, but will be complete with free-to-use charging stations for your electric vehicle.
McDonald’s has recently changed much of its packaging to be more eco-friendly. They have also attempted to reduce the amount of pesticides in the potatoes they purchase for their fries. (McDonald’s is the largest buyer of potatoes in the United States.)
North Carolina ranks twelfth among adults in obesity rates, and fourteenth among children.
One of the biggest obstacles to electric vehicles is the availability and the difficulty in finding charging stations outside of your own home.  Perhaps more restaurants will follow McDonald’s lead.

    Hi, interesting topic – I have just bought an electric bike that I use to get to work everyday. I Just plug in at work to recharge it and then cycle home.
    Absolutely love the bike, it was cheap and simple to use. I got it from http://www.elecbikeco.com they seemed good but I am sure there are many other companies out there too.
    Good luck
