In more evidence that vegan society is growing in America, Google Trends has reported that more and more people are searching for details and news pertaining to the cruelty-free diet.
Last month, Google reported, reached the highest number of searches for “vegan” online, in what can only be a sign that vegan and going veg is becoming mainstream.
Adding to that a 2012 study commissioned by the Vegetarian Resource Group and undertaken by Harris Interactive reported that the 2.5 percent of the country identified themselves as “vegan,” up from 1 percent in 2009.
That is a large jump in only three years and should be a marker for all of us to keep pushing stronger and helping others understand the reality that is a vegan society.
Last year, Mark Bittman of The New York Times reported that American demand for meat was steadily decreasing, with the Department Of Agriculture projecting a further drop.
Still, with advertisements continuing to bombard American viewers, it will remain an uphill battle to provide accurate and real information for all Americans to dispel the myths surrounding us vegans. Keep rocking it.
