    if you wander into the restaurant and order some other product and say, "I'm not buying one of those parrot burgers," and then explain why you're saying it, the cctv cameras will catch it. If enough people do it, BK will stop. It worked at McDonalds in the late '80s, in fact they ran a whole ad campaign around 100% American, non-rainforest sourced, beef.
    You do have to keep at it though, and obviously it pays to pay attention afterward because they'll go back to bad habits.

      is industrial CAFO beef which is also a major driver of climate change emissions and resource depletion.

        but you can only fight one fight at a time. If you live in a family of meat eaters, as I did at the time, you do what you can.
        That being said, my kid did end up vegetarian. The long fight takes a while, and sometimes starts with refusing to buy a burger Happy Meal.
