Remember the last time you tried a veggie burger at a company picnic? You were probably curious, so you went for it, didn’t quite like it, and regretted not grabbing the last juicy burger your officemate is thoroughly enjoying.
Environmental impacts of eating a hamburger

- It takes 18 times as much land to feed a meat-eater than it does to feed a vegan.
- Meat does more damage to the atmosphere than all transportation combined.
