3,000 litres of water are used to produce one quarter-pounder hamburger. We are close to mass extinction of animals for the first time in 66 million years due to deforestation to enable the production of palm oil and the husbandry of animals. The SU should consider making one of the resteraunts fully vegetarian/vegan in order to advocate how easy and exciting a change in behaviours could be for many students. Recycling or walking everywhere is not enough to change the world - this stereotype needs to change - and the University has a duty to provide enlightenment.

I agree in principle but outright 100% vegetarian outlet (considering SUSU only has 2) is too fast (not to mention vegan) and I'm worried it will have the opposite effect. You need to show students cutting meat is cheaper, doable at home and tasty. Add even more vegetarian and vegan dishes (but keep them simple) and promote them everywhere.
Also do not forget trucks still carry your food. Buy local (wherever possible).
