A new study by comparethemarket.com has recently shaken the online community with the revelation that 7% of the UK population is now vegan. This study highlights a huge surge in the popularity of veganism in the last few years - up from a suggested 1% of Great Britain being vegan in 2016, according to The Vegan Society and Vegan Life Magazine.
Earlier this year we saw the rise (or fall) of #Febudairy - a shambolic attempt by the UK dairy industry to regain some of the support they are currently losing on a massive scale. It is hardly surprising that such an attempt would fail stupendously when the industry itself relies heavily on misinformation and lies to keep the public in the dark to the horrors that are inherent in the industry.
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted unanimously yesterday to ban fur from the city, marking a historic moment in the fight to end animal oppression.
This follows the lead of other cities such as Berkeley and West Hollywood, who have already decided to ditch fur. The decision comes after pressure and debate brought attention to the city’s hypocrisy of claiming to have an ethos of kindness to all life, whilst they allow animals to suffer and die for fashion there.
