Ripple vegan chocolate ice cream – ethical review

Ripple Foods’ ice cream is the best vegan ice cream that I’ve bought in a store. The texture is similar to conventional dairy ice cream and it tastes better than the more elaborately engineered vegan ice creams from Brave Robot. Ripple Foods vegan chocolate ice cream gets 4/5 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.

Nature’s Path Pumpkin Raisin Crunch cereal

I bought a box of Nature’s Path Pumpkin Raisin Crunch cereal at the Grocery Outlet. I’m not in the market for nutritionally poor cereals, whether flakes, puffs, charms, loops, or Os. This cereal, comprised of organic whole grains and seeds, is more substantial and nutritious than most. 5/5 Green Stars for social and environmental impact!

Blue Evolution seaweed pasta

: This week’s post is about a new seaweed pasta product from Blue Evolution. I’m a fan for three main reasons: flavor, nutrition, and sustainability. Sustainability is the key here – we should all be eating seaweed to heal this planet. Blue Evolution is a forerunner in bringing sustainable seaweed aquaculture to US shores. 4.5 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.

The impact of processed food

An article came out in the Guardian today: Revealed: the true extent of America’s food monopolies, and who pays the price. It’s a good reminder for me to point out that we should minimize our processed food intake as much as possible. Ethical Bargains aims to highlight the most ethical processed food choices, but any ethical diet should consist of mostly fresh veggies and fruit.

Is Earth Balance ethical?

This is the second of two products made from palm oil that I’m evaluating for ethics and sustainability. Earth Balance is now owned by Conagra, which rates poorly on palm oil sourcing. I’m scoring it 1 Green Star for social and environmental impact.

Nutiva Shortening & Palm Done Right

I’m going to feature two products made from palm oil to highlight the differences in ethics and sustainability. First up is Nutiva Shortening, made from organic palm oil that’s certified by Palm Done Right. 4.5 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.

Miyoko’s Farmhouse Cheddar – review & ethical rating

Miyoko Schinner is a pioneer in the field of vegan dairy. I’m including Miyoko’s Farmhouse Cheddar on my list of the best vegan cheeses. Ethically, I think it deserves a perfect score of 5 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.

So Delicious vegan cheese slices – review

In my continuing mission to seek out the best vegan cheese, I thought that So Delicious deserve to be included for their two vegan sliced cheeses – American Style and Cheddar Style. 3.5 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.
