First: I don’t hate vegans. I like vegans. I sleep with vegans. But the idea that America could go from 3 percent to 100 percent vegan in the next 36 years is the biggest pile of tempeh I’ve smelled in a while.
According to Ecorazzi, Kathy Stevens of Catskill Animal Sanctuary thinks the U.S. could be totally vegan by 2050. Here’s her reasoning:
- Meat consumption is on the decline, while interest in vegan food is on the rise.
- Supermarkets are adding new vegan products.
- Restaurants are becoming more responsive to vegans.
- The rich and powerful are throwing their money behind vegan startups.
