What’s the big deal about a burger?
Eat one less burger a month. The greenhouse gas emissions arising every year from the production and consumption of cheeseburgers is roughly the same as the emissions from the 16 million SUVs currently on the road in the US.
It takes 6 gallons of water to produce a head of lettuce, but it takes over 1,000 to produce a cheeseburger with lettuce, because the feed for the cows is so inefficient to grow, plus the emissions for the tractors is very high.
