On my new site, Ethical Bargains, I wrote a review of Impossible Burgers that I bought at the Grocery Outlet. Take a look if you’re interested and please comment to share your opinion on a Green Stars rating for the Impossible Burger. You could look at the product in two very different ways:
A. The Impossible Burger is one of the most meat-like burgers developed to date, providing an important incentive for meat-eaters to change their habits and combat climate change.
B. This Impossible Burger 2.0 is basically industrially-farmed soy and sunflower (treated with glyphosate and neonics) wrapped in a lot of plastic.
If we want to be fair (which is the goal of this project!) we need to consider both perspectives. I know plenty of scientists who think that industrial farming is not a negative thing. Because it’s such a complex topic, I plan to do a few posts in the near future here on the GSP that will aim to objectively dissect the research and arguments on the topic of industrial versus organic agriculture. The Impossible Burger stands at an interesting junction in this debate.

I love it!
I cut real beef burgers from my diet several years ago. I’ll pass on this substitute.
Beyond Meat is a better tasting product and they don’t use so much plastic. The company does claim that their packagin is all recycled plastic. I just don’t like plastic of any kind.
