A new McDonald's built at Jurong Central Park in Singapore is an example of how the company is striving for a better future, with a green roof installed specifically for the ecosystem.

Fast food may not currently be thought of as the healthiest, however one company is working to better its image, especially when it comes to the environment.

A new McDonalds built at Jurong Central Park in Singapore is the perfect example of how the company is striving for a better future, with a green roof installed specifically for the ecosystem.

Located in a tree filled, lush park, the surroundings around the fast food joint are not only beautiful, but they also provide a home for different species of animals.

The firm responsible for designing the building put an emphasis on the living beings around the structure and on the ecosystem in general.

The lush green roof is natural and sustainable. Water retention and drainage trays store plenty of water which provides plants with nutrition during dry periods,

The green roof also helps to keep a steady cooler temperature inside the building, which reduces energy costs.

On the ground level, plants surround the building, making it blend into the natural green surroundings.
