Popular salad restaurant Sweetgreen is buying into kelp in 2020, the Washington Post reports.

Why it matters: Kelp is beneficial for both human and ocean health. Sweetgreen's temporary introduction of a "Tingly Sweet Potato and Kelp Bowl" will now give the food a platform across 104 stores nationwide.

  • And kelp is a new revenue stream for fishers and aqua-farmers who're hoping to cash in on the trend. Kelp could particularly help the pocketbooks of fishermen facing depleting marine populations due to climate change.
  • Growing kelp can also help reverse acidification in ocean waters while reeling in carbon dioxide.

What to watch: The bowl will debut Thursday and be available until March 26.

Why it matters: Wall Street had its chips on a Trump win until recently — even in the midst of the coronavirus-induced recession and Biden's rise in the polls.
