Today's fast food chains are not known for being easy on the environment. With meat-heavy menus, factory farms, pounds of packaging, and ingredients shipped around the world, the carbon footprint of some of the world's favorite burgers is high. But Sonic Drive-In is taking the first step towards changing that with its newest menu addition.

Last year, the fast food restaurant began testing the Slinger, a beef burger that’s made partly with mushrooms, which is not only healthier for the consumer, but healthier for the environment, too. The testing went so well that now Sonic is now offering the burger in all of its 3,500-plus locations, according to Fast Company, becoming the first large chain to release a “blended burger" of this kind.
