A popular fast-food firm is to trial containers made from bamboo in Canada.
KFC will start using bamboo fibre poutine buckets in early 2020 in an effort to be more environmentally responsible.
"We're proud of our sustainability journey and we want our customers to feel that KFC is dedicated to [...] delivering it in a way that our guests can feel good about," innovation manager Armando Carrillo said.
The American brand, which is headquartered in Kentucky and brings in tens of billions of dollars a year, said it chose bamboo because of its renewability.
Certain members of the bamboo family can grow 36 inches a day.
KFC Canada pledged to source all of its fibre packaging from renewable sources by 2020.
