WINNING: This Meat-Heavy Bar Is Replacing Its Beef and Lamb With Impossible Burgers
The Impossible Burger has gained quite a reputation as the meatiest vegan burger on the market—with both vegans and meat eaters singing its praises—especially in the past few months. The plant-based burger is now sold at over 250 restaurants in 18 states. It’s a complete game changer.
And yesterday, a local news source reported that the Owl Social Club in Portland, an establishment known for its meat-heavy fare, was ditching beef and lamb altogether and instead offering the Impossible Burger, citing environmental concerns.
Considering that the Impossible Burger uses 75 percent less water and 95 percent less land and produces 87 percent less greenhouse gas than a beef burger, the move makes perfect sense.
Portland Monthly explains:
In 2017, Portland’s White Owl Social Club sold roughly $80,000 worth of beef and lamb burgers. By 2019, that number will drop to zero. Last week, the metal bar announced on social media that it had permanently eliminated beef and lamb from its menu.
But this is far from the first restaurant to move away from meat. Just last fall, Los Angeles pub Beelman’s switched to a completely plant-based menu. And in 2016, New York City restaurateur Ravi DeRossi made headlines when he decided to turn nearly all his 15 restaurants and bars vegan—and business is booming!
As more people learn about the animal cruelty and environmental degradation inherent in meat production, they’re ditching animal products in favor of the many healthful and delicious plant-based alternatives.
