Impossible Burgers Finally Hit Grocery Stores
Good news for vegans everywhere—The Impossible Burger, a meat-free burger that’s previously only been available in restaurants, will be available to buy in grocery stores for the first time this week. Mark your calendars! On September 20, you will be able to buy the plant-based burgers in 27 Gelson’s Markets stores in Southern California. Impossible Foods has been teasing the retail release of its Impossible Burger for the past week, encouraging its followers to guess which city the burgers will debut in. It inadvertently spoiled the surprise on Tuesday, however, when it announced that its in-store launch would be taking place in Westfield Century City in Los Angeles.
Don’t live in California?
Not to worry! Impossible Foods says it will bring the burger to more grocery stores — including some on the East Coast — later this month, and it plans to reach every region of the US by the middle of next year.

Rihanna’s Lingerie Hits Amazon Prime
Rihanna is headed to Amazon Prime Video on Friday. But don’t expect her music. Expect her lingerie. Yup. In case you didn’t know, the pop singer sells bras, underwear, bodysuits, leggings, sleepwear, slips, robes and other non-digital wearables, and they’re about to make their way down the streaming runway.
What is her Amazon show about?
It’s a streaming version of Savage X Fenty’s big, bold runway New York Fashion Week show last week at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. The theatrical production featured bright lights, pulsating music, and models of all colors, shapes, sizes, including two pregnant women, sashaying through moving biomes. Check out the trailer for her big show!
Swedish Student Inspires Climate Strikes
When Greta Thunberg, a Swedish school student, sat in front of the Swedish parliament building with her hand-painted “Skolstrejk för klimatet” sign, she kick-started a worldwide movement. Thunberg has become the face of the new movement, inspiring students across the world to leave school and demand action on climate change. In March, students took to the streets in over 2,000 cities asking adults to take responsibility for the climate crisis. Smaller strikes occurred in May, June and August.
Which corporations have been inclined to get involved?
Workers are also expected to join from tech companies like Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and also…Amazon.
It’s the first walkout at the Amazon headquarters in the company’s 25-year-history, and over 1,000 employees are expected to take part. Among their demands, employees are asking for the company to stop providing cloud services to oil and gas companies. And stop giving campaign contributions to climate change deniers.
