The Conscious Scoop: A Whole City goes Vegan on Mondays & Super Typhoon

Reading Time: 2 minutes

A whole city is going vegan for a day, the Impossible Burger is here to tickle your taste buds with their plant-based burgers that taste too real, and rental “shopping” might just take over the fast-fashion industry.

Plant-based food and fashion take the spotlight in this week’s Conscious Scoop. Check out these hot sustainability headlines from around the world and the region from the past seven days.


1. Berkeley adopts Vegan Mondays city-wide

Ready to make a commitment to reducing their impact, the City Council of Berkeley, CA just unanimously approved this resolution which requires all city-owned facilities and programs to only serve vegan food for one day every week. The City Council will also only serve vegan food at its meetings.

What an example!


2. ‘Super Typhoon’ Ravaging Hong Kong is a Signal of the Horrors to Come

Hong Kong and the Philippines suffered horrific damage this week with the planet’s strongest storm of the year: Typhoon Mangkhut. ‘A haunting exhibition of Mother Nature’s savage potential. Someday, we will have to explain to our children how we watched all of this and did nothing.’

It’s time to stop doing nothing, watch why here.


3. Los Angeles Bans The Manufacturing & Selling Of Fur

Los Angeles City Council unanimously voted to ban the sale and manufacturing of fur, making it the largest city in the United States (and the world!) to go fur-free. The fight against fur is a big one and now LA has joined some of the world’s largest luxury brands like Gucci, Jimmy Choo, and Burberry.

PETA says fur is dead. 


5. Impossible Burger making the impossible, possible

Impossible Foods has to created plant-based burgers so tasty that meat-lovers will never be able to tell it’s not meat. What they want to do is to save the world from the damage caused by the meat industry. After plenty of research, they’ve found the secret that makes meat so tasty – heme. With that magic ingredient, they’re on a journey to make plant-based meat so real you can’t stop munching.

Will your children grow up in a meat-less world? 


4. Technology that helps you breathe better

Atmotube just launched 2 new portable wearable air quality and weather trackers to help you make healthier choices. It senses environmental quality changes and give you real-time data about how safe the air around you is. They also use crowdsourced data to tell you which areas are unsafe to enter.

A convenient safety blanket in your pocket. 


6. Renting your fashion – good for your pocket and on the Earth

Renting or swapping your clothes may be just the solution for your bursting wardrobe. Fast fashion, while momentarily euphoric, leaves a lasting negative impact on the Earth. So why not switch to renting? You still get 101239283 outfits but no longer need extra wardrobe space, AND you prevent clothes from going to the landfills.

Make rental fashion the new fast fashion.
