and countless unwitting fast-food restaurant employees

Did you know?

• 1 in 4 Americans eats fast food every day.

• That's 75 million people a day.

• We created 1.5 pounds of trash from our 21 meals

• We multiplied our average trash per meal by 75 million people.

• That comes out to
5.7 MILLION POUNDS OF TRASH. created by eating fast food. every day.

• That's like throwing away 570 elephants a day.

• That's just in the United States.

• If we had only used Mike's average trash per meal, that figure would have jumped to 8.4 MILLION POUNDS!

Random stuff

• Mike ate McDonald's before he got on the train to come visit us. So technically he ate fast food for 8 meals in a row.
