Veganism on the Rise

 

Veganism is no doubt gaining more popularity with each passing day. Whether you agree with their values or not, you cannot deny the increasing amount of vegan friendly products appearing on the supermarket shelves or the new menu options at popular restaurants.

Nowadays there are plenty of opportunities for those who want to understand the lifestyle a bit better. Take vegan festivals, for example.

Last weekend saw the 10th anniversary of the annual West Midlands Vegan Festival in Wolverhampton. With more than 180 stalls, 40 talks and 10 cookery demos over the two-day event, there was plenty to see and taste. According to the organisers, only half of the attending 6,000 people were actually following a vegan diet.
