Burger King’s latest sustainability effort: Reduce cow farts

Local News

Burger King wants to lower its contribution to methane gas by feeding its cows a healthier diet.

Most methane in the environment comes from bovines releasing gas, what a 6-year old boy would call … farts. Those emissions are a key contributor to climate change.

The new diet will lead to fewer cow toots releasing the gas into the environment. The cows are being fed 100 grams of lemongrass daily.

Burger King says that can help cut emissions by 33% each day.

Restaurants in some cities will be eating new lemongrass-fed beef whoppers starting Tuesday.
