7-Eleven didn't make a big deal about it, but Hampton Creek, the makers of Just Mayo announced via Twitter that the convenience store chain is switching to the mayo substitute for the foods it makes. Just Mayo is an eggless mayonnaise made from pea protein. Ecorazzi interviewed Hampton Creek CEO Josh Tetrick about the switch, which should be in effect at all 7-Eleven stores by now. The estimated environmental and health benefits of the switch are impressive. By switching from mayonnaise made with eggs to the plant-based Just Mayo, Tetrick estimates "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."
