Today is National Burger Day, so we want to take a minute and talk about the best version of this American classic—the veggie burger!

We know that veggie burgers are tasty and awesomely cruelty-free. And you know that we’ve got your back with our new and improved Veggie Burger Project to help you get tasty animal-free foods in your school cafeteria. But there’s so much more that our humble plant-based patties have to offer!

Dig our five fave reasons why veggie burgers rock our world, then find out how you can get a free shirt!

Veggie burgers can help bring about world peace!

Veggie burgers can help end world hunger. Yup, we just said that. Using an acre of land to raise cattle for food gives people only 20 pounds of meat. That same amount of land would give people 365 pounds of protein-rich soybeans. Seventeen times more people could be saved from starvation—make the connection.

Veggie burgers express your personality!

Tempeh bacon and BBQ sauce? Teriyaki and pineapple? Bagel Burger Bomb?! Five-Layer Taco Burger?! Your burger, your choice. Customize yours and make it your own.

Optional: Eat it in front of your meat-eating friends and watch them drool.

Polar bears and whales  veggie burgers!

Welllll, maybe not quite. But we’re sure that they’d be stoked if they knew that you were helping to fight climate change by eating plant-based foods instead of meat. Why? Because raising animals for food is one of the biggest causes of greenhouse gasses (aka “pollution”)!

Veggie burgers save thousands of lives!

Vegetarians, on average, save the lives of more than 100 animals a year, and vegans save nearly 200! If you love animals, this is a no-brainer.

This “I Veggie Burgers” shirt is FREE!

Yup, this is a double win! Head over to peta2’s Veggie Burger Project to learn how to get some flesh-free foods in your school cafeteria—we’ll help you every step of the way! As soon as your school says yes, let us know and we’ll hook you up with a boatload of Street Team points and this awesome “I ♥ Veggie Burgers” tee. 

HAPPY NATIONAL
(VEGGIE) BURGER DAY!

    I’m a size XS/S, and my favorite animals are rats. I know rats aren’t everybody’s first pick of favorite animals, but they’re really lovable, intelligent animals who have a bad reputation. I really love rats. & chickens. <3_<3
