Climate Change is Real.
So is Our Power to Act.

Our choices about what we eat represent our single biggest daily opportunity to change our environmental footprint. Eat the Change™ combines marketplace solutions with education and activism to empower consumers to make dietary choices aligned with their concerns around climate and health.

We're part of a movement to promote planet-friendly eating


Eat the Change is our new Bethesda, MD based company created by Seth Goldman, Founder of Honest Tea and Chair of the Board at Beyond Meat, and Celebrity Chef Spike Mendelsohn. We're on a mission to create chef-crafted and nutrient dense snacks that are kind to the planet. With our Planet-Based commitments, we're expanding the possibilities and the impact of planet-friendly foods.


Planet-Based planet-w-heart Commitments

With our planet-based commitments, we're expanding the possibilities
of what a more sustainable food system could look like:

  • 01-plant-fungi
  • 02-organic
  • 05-recylable
  • 03-support-biodiversity

    As part of our commitment to supporting
    biodiversity, we avoid the 6 biggest crops that
    represent more than half of all agricultural output:
    sugar, corn, rice, wheat, potatoes, and soy

  • 04-imperfect-produce

    Addressing food waste by upcycling imperfect
    produce and extending its shelf life


The first company developed under the Eat the Change umbrella, PLNT Burger is our quick-serve restaurant that celebrates American classic comfort foods but with an improved flavor experience and made entirely with plants. Our innovative menu, developed by Chefs Spike Mendelsohn and Mike Colletti, features delicious Beyond burgers and sausage, as well fries, soft-serve and more.

Our pilot store opened in the Whole Foods Market in Silver Spring, Maryland in September of 2019, and we now have 6 stores in the DMV and one in Wynnewood PA.
