Meet Emily

Emily is a student who is working on her Master's in Environmental Science. She is aware of how she affects the environment and usually chooses food that is good for the environment. However, sometimes her busy schedule and tight budget force her to eat at fast food places. McDonald's is one place she goes sometimes because it's cheap and has a lot to choose from on the menu. She likes that McDonald's has salads and vegetarian options, which are in line with her values of being environmentally friendly.
