The focus of this website is to encourage and support non-vegans to set a goal of becoming 95% vegan. It is very difficult for many to be 100% Vegan in a culture where meat and dairy is so highly promoted and considered the norm. Slowly we must begin changing the culture so that it becomes easier to eat vegan on a regular basis. this site promotes also trying to become more vegan at any percentage that one can achieve.
5% of Americans say they are vegetarians, a number that is unchanged since 2012. Meanwhile 3% say they are vegans, which is up from 2% in 2012. There’s evidence to suggest that more people should consider these diets, particularly veganism — which shuns all animal products including meat, fish, shellfish, dairy, honey and gelatin — for one big reason: It helps the planet, a lot.
According to a 2018 study of 40,000 farms in 119 countries published in the journal Science, cutting out your consumption of meat and dairy might be the single most effective step you can take to reduce your negative environmental impact on the Earth. One reason: We get just 18% of our calories and 37% of our protein from meat and dairy, but livestock suck up 83% of our farmland and generate 60% of the agricultural greenhouse gas.
