Environmental benefits:

CO2 Emissions Saved per Year is calculated based on the following factors as given by a guide by Transport Direct

We convert this to trees based on the CO2 intake of a fully grown tree being around 21kg per year which is sourced from the Urban Forestry Network


Health benefits:

Calories burned per week are calculated in line with the Harvard University study and based on a 155 lb person cycling at a pace of 12 - 13.9 kmph. 

We based the average calories of a burger on details provided by Nutrition Charts and use an average of 500 calories per burger.
