By now, you’ve probably heard about Chipotle’s move to go green.
Chipotle has partnered with the nonprofit Sustainable Development Solutions Initiative (SDSI), which uses sustainable food packaging and production to help make the company more sustainable and environmentally friendly.
According to the SFGate, Chipotle started using 100 percent natural ingredients to make the sauce, salad and burrito bowls and the sauce itself has been made with organic and locally sourced ingredients.
Chipotle’s new logo also shows a green flag in the center of the plate, which indicates that Chipotle can go green at any time.
The menu items at Chipotle are made using organic and/or locally sourced produce, as well as eggs, beans, chicken and other organic meats and poultry.
Chipotles also sells organic, non-GMO chicken and turkey, as does its Mexican food.
So while Chipotle may have become the first fast food chain to go organic, the brand still needs to take on more green steps.
For example, Chipotls veggie burritos now include a vegan and vegetarian option.
But that’s not the only change Chipotle will have to make in the coming year.
In January, Chipots new CEO Dan Cathy will step down as CEO and replace him with the long-time CEO of the restaurant chain.
Cathy will be replaced by former Chipotle CEO Andy Puzder.
While it’s unclear what the changes are for Chipotle customers, it’s not hard to see that the menu changes will be minimal.
With the company now going green, I’d guess it’s only a matter of time before Chipotle makes some changes in the future to help the brand stay green.
