When is this day? October 10
What is this day? World Plant-based Burger Day celebrates all the plant-based burgers! The goal is excite and inspire people to choose a plant-based diet.
Burgers are an all-American staple food sold mostly in fast-food. By celebrating World Plant-based Burger Day, we direct that love for burgers in a sustainable way by celebrating burgers that make everyone, including our planet, happy! Additionally, in the middle of this pandemic, plant-based food has been a solution to reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure from animal products to human consumption as well as a healthier alternative to feed our communities after the massive shut down of slaughter houses.
Who created this day? This day was created by Veganburg in 2020.
How should this day be celebrated or observed? By eating a plant-based burger! One vegan patty saves 6.7 pounds of grain and forage (fed to livestock), 52.8 gallons of water for irrigating feed crops, 74.5 square feet of land for grazing and growing feed crops and 1,036 fossil fuel energy for feed production and transport! Hopefully, people will remember that every time they choose to eat a 100% plant-based burger, they are literally helping save the planet, one burger at a time.
