McDonald’s, stop cooking the planet. Bring a meat-free burger to Australia!

Last year McDonald’s trialled its first ever vegan burger in Finland. It was so successful, the McVegan has now become a regular menu item in more than 270 outlets across Scandinavia.

Despite huge consumer demand, McDonald’s is yet to introduce a meat-free burger in Australia. With over 30 burgers and wraps on the menu, it’s hard to believe there is not a single plant-based option. This is terrible news for the planet, which is rapidly cooking under the carbon footprint of unsustainable beef consumption.

TAKE ACTION – please sign the petition demanding McDonald’s give Australians the freedom to choose a low-carbon, meat-free burger.

McDonald’s Australia sells a massive 27.8 million kilograms of beef every single year. If just 1 in every 1,000 customers swapped a Quarter Pounder for a meat-free option, it would save:

  • 842,424 meat patties
  • 27,800 kilograms of beef
  • 1.844 million kilograms of carbon emissions
  • 422 million litres of water, and
  • 840,000 square kilometres of precious Australian farmland.

And that’s not even mentioning all the animals this simple menu addition could save.

But right now, burger-loving Aussies  don’t have a choice. There’s not a single meat-free option on the menu – and it’s simply not good enough.

Please add your name to the petition, and let McDonalds know climate-conscious Australians want the option to choose a low carbon, meat free burger when we sit down to lunch.
