Known for its ready-to-assemble furniture and budget-friendly cafe, Swedish furniture company Ikea began offering a veggie hotdog on their menu a couple months ago in an effort to reduce its carbon emissions. The eco-friendly decision already paid off: The company reports its already sold 1 million of the plant-based hot dog.

Made from a blend of kale, red lentils, carrots, and ginger, the hot dog contains no meat at all. Ikea claims its new veggie alternative has approximately seven times less Co2 emissions/kg than its standard version. The carbon footprint of the hot dog made from meat is 6.38 kgCO2eq/kg, while the veggie hot dog has a carbon footprint of 1.02 kgCO2eq/kg.
