It’s Earth Month so let’s discuss sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint by what we eat! Learn all about PLNT Burger’s earth-friendly products and how they promote their motto: Eat the Change You Wish to See in the World! Celebrity Chef Spike Mendelsohn and Jonah Goldman, Director of Strategic Marketing of PLNT Burger, bring this sandwich to life! Let’s take a look…

 

 

VEGAN FAST FOOD FOR THE PLANET

The best way to address the growing climate crisis is to choose vegan. Celebrity chef Spike Mendelsohn and the team at PLNT Burger are on a mission to create the best burgers on the planet and for the planet with their menu of chef-crafted, 100% plant-based food offerings.  Their menu is so mouth-wateringly delicious and is perfect for grubbing on Earth Day and every day because every day is Earth Day…am I right?!  Without the planet, we’ve got nothing.

 

In honor of our Mother Earth, PLNT Burger will be offering $3.95 Chik ‘N Funguy sandwiches all month long, as well as $1 Crispy Herb and Sweet Potato Fries on Tuesdays in partnership with McCain Foods as part of McCain’s Pledge for Sustainability. On Earth Day, PLNT Burger launched its new limited-time-only menu item, Quinoa Cashew Crunch Salad.  Oh Yum!

Its first location was a restaurant kiosk inside the Whole Foods Market in downtown Silver Spring, MD.   PLNT Burger quickly expanded to 7 locations across the DMV and PA where they serve plant-based foods that are far more sustainable, leaving much less of a carbon footprint.  “I like to say every day is Earth Day at PLNT Burger,” said Chef Spike Mendelsohn who was inspired to create a vegan burger for his vegan wife, Cody Mendeloshn. “I was blown away by the incredible taste and texture of the Beyond Meat Patties and knew people like my wife, or even carnivores or flexitarians who want to reduce their carbon footprint, needed more options. Considering Americans eat more than 50 billion burgers a year, there was clearly a huge opportunity for us to create a restaurant that would change the way people looked at veggie burgers.”

“Our PLNT Burger Patty requires 99% less water, 93% less land, and generates 90% fewer emissions compared to an animal-based burger,” said Ben Kaplan, CEO of PLNT Burger. “We have also used the part of a mushroom that is typically composted to create our Chik N’ Funguy Sandwiches because we believe in food innovation that works for the planet, not against it.”

PLNT Burger is on a mission and believes we need to change our eating habits in order to see the changes we want in the world.  PLNT Burger will be partnering with Support and Feed and Housing Up to help organize trash clean-ups throughout the month of April.  PLNT Burger will also be joining forces with the local bakery, Whisked, and will plant one tree for every cookie sold throughout the month.  So amazing!
