The petition webpage says that by adding a vegan option, McDonald's would not only be 'helping
the environment but helping to save a life'.
beyond ethics, also arguing that fast-food giants 'are taking notice of the
rise of vegan and vegetarianism and it is helping them make big bucks'.
petition successful, McDonald's would be contributing to an already rapid
increase in accessibility of vegan options.
McDonald's has a vegan burger option in select countries already, there hasn't
been a permanent menu item added in North America.
In light of
this, Care2 makes a final plea on the petition website.
It reads: "American
animals and people deserve to have a cruelty-free option in McDonald's stores
Care2 is calling on McDonald's to bring their vegan burger to the U.S."
