Calling All #Vegans: Get Counted!
Veganism is hardly the foreign concept it used to be. Check out the healthy eating section of any bookstore and you’re sure to find more than one shelf of vegan cookbooks. Peruse the aisles of your local health food store, or even your average supermarket, and you’ll find that meat-free options abound. Restaurants are catering more to the plant-based sect and highlighting the cruelty-free choices on their menus. Celebrities and politicians are chatting up their favorite meatless meals. Movies like “Forks Over Knives ” and “Vegucated ” are opening eyes and influencing tastebuds. Veganism has come a long way and it makes it hard to believe that statistics show that there are 1 million vegans in the United States. Doesn’t it feel like vegans are everywhere?
