      August 23, 2006 Vegan Outreach e-Newsletter Am incercat sa trimit doar bucatica asta dintr-un newsletter. Mi se pare super draguta poza cu fetita activista :) Apropos de asta am gasit niste super wallpaper-uri printre care si unele cu niste copii veg. : http://www.semchen.org/resources/wallpapers.htm

       

      Growth of Veganism, Revisited

      People often think that it is not possible for veganism to become the norm, or even widespread. But, even ignoring the millions of vegans in the country currently, if just the 32,000 who receive this e-mail list grows by 20% a year -- that is, one-fifth of those receiving this influence just one person to change their diet each year -- then the entire U.S. population would be vegan by 2058 (adjusting for population growth based on Census projections).

      If active outreach efforts like Adopt a College influence just an additional 2,500 people this year, with this number growing by 20% a year, veganism would be the norm by 2050; if an additional 5,000 people next year, growing at 33% -- 2039.

      Of course, there is no way to know how the future will progress. It is likely that not everyone alive in 2050 will choose to be an ethical vegan, but this doesn't mean they will eat the same as today. In addition to more vegans and vegetarians, there will be many more near-vegetarians and people choosing animal products from small farms. There will be many more great faux-meat options available, at many more places, at significantly lower prices (since it is more efficient to eat plant foods directly). The worst farming practices will be vilified and then outlawed, and animal agriculture, at the very least, will be radically changed.

      Person-to-person educational outreach is unglamorous work, but with your help, we will see tremendous advancement within our lifetime!
