The Growing vegan community

Over 2,000 years of history show that individuals have made the life-changing decision to stop using animal products and live a more ethical lifestyle. Although not a novel belief, veganism has recently gained a lot of popularity and is no longer a momentary fad. It has become a widely accepted lifestyle choice that is rooted in morality and has a significant presence on social media and beyond. According to Global News Wire, the global vegan food market size is projected to be worth around $65.4 billion by 2030. The vegan community is growing exponentially and we are excited to feature 9 incredible Instagram influencers who are paving the way for veganism in their fun, unique ways.
