Not a Happy Meal  

Credit:  Public Eye - May 12, 2013 | By Ken de la Bastide and Scott Smith, Tribune columnists | Kokomo Tribune | kokomotribune.com ~~

The Tipton County Citizens for Responsible Development have been upset recently with the U.S. Postal Service and McDonald’s.

What has the wind farm opponents blowing a gasket is letters coming out of the USPS in Indianapolis with a wind turbine as part of the cancellation mark. One CRD member at a recent meeting indicated he was retired from the post office and called to have the wind turbine removed.

CRD members were also disappointed that on some McDonald’s bags there is a picture of a wind turbine. McDonald’s received an award in 2012 from American Wind Energy for encouraging the use of wind energy by a supplier to produce French fries.

Some CRD members were urging people to stop dining at McDonald’s and even suggested entering the restaurant and telling management they normally spend money there, but won’t until the wind turbines are removed.

So far there is no word on if the “wind turbine” bag boycott is having an impact on the sales of Happy Meals.
