Veganism is on the rise

“Veganism rises by 360% in 10 years”

The Telegraph published an article Wednesday showcasing the statistics that over the past 10 years, Veganism has risen by a phenomenal 360%; a massive win for the Vegan community showing how many more people are choosing compassion with this cruelty-free lifestyle.

The article states that a survey by The Vegan Society shows that the number of Vegans in the UK has risen to 542,000 people (and this is just the over 15’s), up from 150,000 in 2006. The Vegan Society claims Veganism is one of Britain’s “fastest growing lifestyle movements“. 

Veganism is a lot easier now days, with thousands of suitable food options for people; supermarkets are filled with these, I went to Morrison’s the other day and saw they were even selling a Vegan sandwich ‘meat’, which I’d only previously seen in specialist places like Holland and Barrett. It’s amazing and shows that these companies will listen to the demand.

The article touches on the health benefits of the lifestyle, and shows Veganism in such a positive light, that not many media sources will. It’s really great for a national newspaper like The Telegraph to publish this online.
