Each week our friends at Inhabitat recap the week's most interesting green developments and clean tech news for us -- it's the Week in Green.
Summer is traditionally a time for firing up the grill and cooking up some burgers and dogs, but this week saw a high-profile foray into the realm of lab-grown meat. The world's first £250,000 lab-grown hamburger was taste-tested in London, and those who tried it said it isn't terrible, but it needs more fat. In response, Inhabitat polled readers to see what they would be more inclined to eat: the lab-grown meat, which was financially backed by Google co-founder Sergey Brin, or Beyond Meat chicken strips made mostly with soy protein, which are backed by Twitter co-founders Biz Stone and Evan Williams. On the design front, interior furnishing giant IKEA is set to debut a new augmented reality catalog that will allow you to preview what different products would look like in your apartment. And to find out how the company is able to produce cheap products while maintaining a small impact on the planet, Inhabitat interviewed IKEA's Chief Sustainability Officer, Steve Howard.
