7-Eleven Stores Will Switch Exclusively to Plant-Based Just Mayo

Coming soon to a 7-Eleven near you: Just Mayo, Hampton Creek’s tasty, environmentally-friendly, and healthy plant-based condiment.

Founder and CEO Josh Tetrick recently announced on Twitter that all 7-Eleven stores in the U.S. will now use exclusively Just Mayo on all their sandwiches.

“It’s the only mayo that they will have, and one that is infinitely better for the planet,” Tetrick told Ecorazzi over the phone following the announcement. “The environment wins, you win.”

Hampton Creek has been championing products that are simultaneously inexpensive and healthy, ones that are better for the environment and the body. “This goes right to the core of who we are as a company,” added Tetrick. It’s not just about finding a spot in Whole Foods or Rainbow Foods, says Tetrick, but outlets like Walmart and 7-Eleven as well.

Over the last two weeks, Hampton Creek has been working with 7-Eleven on the switch. The move will go into effect in 10 days, a change that they speculate each year will save over 81 million gallons of water, preserve over 4 million square feet of land, and prevent 191 million grams of CO2 emission. For the body, 1.5 billion milligrams of sodium, 304 million milligram of cholesterol, and 30 million grams of saturated fat would be avoided annually.

“The way we look at things is what if we started over from scratch? How would we do things differently? For us we want it to taste better, be less expensive, be less impactful on the environment in a negative way, and the most effective way to do that is use plants.”

Hampton Creek also boasts Just Cookies, an all-natural and tasty treat.
