Kentucky Fried Chicken may not make you think immediately of sustainability, but the new KFC Green Indianapolis project aims to continue on with the environmentally conscious attitude that the restaurant chain has begun to explore.

One location of the fast food joint in Indiana has big plans to build a new structure that upholds green architectural standards. The project will begin with the sourcing and assembly of local construction materials, followed by the installation of efficient fixtures such as water-saving plumbing and long-life LED lighting. All efforts will be focused on economy and waste reduction, which should gain the chain recognition from the U.S. Green Building Council and LEED certification.

The KFC Green Indianapolis goes hand-in-hand with the company's recent efforts to develop sustainable take-out packaging.
