It’s no secret: The plantbased message is getting stronger!
In many parts of the world and across various cultures, the idea of eating a plantbased diet, or “going vegan,” has become more normal and popular than ever before. And it’s for good reason. Eating only plantbased foods is great for your health and the environment, and is an all-around “feel-good” lifestyle choice. If you live in the U.S., you’ll know just how prominent the vegan diet has become. Fully vegan restaurants have opened in every major city, online vegan marketplaces will deliver vegan foods straight to your door, and non-vegans generally know about and accept vegan diets.
