Can a giant multi-national fast food restaurant do some good in the world? One Riverside McDonald's seems to think so, after they remodeled the 44-year-old location to "become more sustainable and energy-efficient," reports KTLA. The normally "golden" arches are now green, beckoning customers to check out their drought-tolerant landscaping and low-flow plumbing. Of course nothing has changed about the food: You can still buy your kid a Happy Meal and have faith that it will still look exactly the same if you happen to not eat it for six months.
