When he's not polishing his Oscar or shacking up with models in swanky hotel rooms, Leonardo DiCaprio really cares about the planet and not destroying it.

So he's investing in a plant-based, vegan burger company called Beyond Meat to curb carbon emissions. 

You've surely eaten seitan and tofu burgers before (if you didn't spit them out), but Beyond Meat is entirely different. The innovative company manipulates plant protein so that it'll taste so unnervingly close to the real thing, it'll downright terrify you.

See how real this patty looks, below.

Don't worry about having a dry veggie burger patty fall apart (Leo knows better) because Beyond Meat burgers actually bleed due to beet-juice faux blood. That's simply unbeetable...

"Livestock production is a major contributor to carbon emissions," DiCaprio said in a statement. 

"Shifting from animal meat to the plant-based meats…is one of the most powerful measures someone can take to reduce their impact on our climate."

We know you're probably opposed to veggie burgers on principle, but leave it to legendary Leonardo DiCaprio to try to change all our minds.
