Quiznos Embraces Green Packaging

The Wall Street Journal reports that popular fast food resaturant, Quiznos will begin using "green" packaging for their food items. Patrons soon will be eating salads out of bowls made from sugarcane pulp and dabbing their mouths with napkins made from recycled materials.

Drinks will be served in wax-coated paper cups that break down more quickly in landfills and the hats and aprons staffers wear will be made from recycled soda-pop bottles.

According to the report, the move also could pay off by drawing new customers. A study by the National Restaurant Association stated that 62% of consumers said they're likely to choose a restaurant based on how environmentally friendly it is.
