Vegan-friendly products for Xmas! Profits will fund Anthony Marr’s pro-vegan campaign.

I’ve known that veganism has been on the rise in the US over the last several years; I just didn’t know by how much. While doing market research on vegan-friendly products, I was astonished to find the number of vegans in the US having skyrocketed over the last 3 years 6-10 times! In 2014, the US vegan population was pegged at less than 1% of the total population, or less than 3.3 million; some estimate as low as 0.5%, or just 1.6 million. Now, in 2017, the vegan population estimate has jump up to 6% of the total population, or some 20 million. Let me play seriously moderate and say that in 2014 the US vegan population was 2% or 6.6 million and in 2017 it has risen to 4% or 13 million; even so, this is a doubling in 3 years. Imagine your financial investment doing that! Whenever possible, Read More …

Vegans are A-listers, top athletes & revolutionary visionaries!

Back in my university days, I had a few buddies who shared one thing in common – they were left-handed, and uttered one common complaint – that there were few to no products on the market catering to lefties, making them feel underprivileged, compared to, uh, me, who was and still is a rightie. Lefties make up about 10% of the population – a socio-economic force to reckon with. So one evening, in a party, one of them came up with a brilliant idea – to create a company called Left Out, Inc. Unfortunately, he was a bit inebriated; when he sobered up, the idea was forgotten. But it lingered in the back of my mind, and now it has re-emerged with a new focus – VEGANs. If you think that lefties are few, vegans are even fewer, comprising only 0.5% of the population, or about 1.6 million in total Read More …

Vegan-friendly & cruelty-free – products & solutions

                                A “Vegan” is not an alien from the star Vega, but a peace-loving Earthling living the compassionate and sustainable vegan way of life. As with most communities, the vegan community has its 1% and its 99%. “99%” has two meanings: 1. quantitatively in terms of population, and 2. qualitatively referring to the number one question the 1% loves to ask the 99%: “How vegan are you?” A pragmatic 99%er would say “I am 99% vegan”, because practically speaking, there is no way in this highly synthetic society to attain 100% purity as a vegan. If you just drive on pavement you are not 100%-vegan, because asphalt contains animal ingredients. The 1% spend 99% of their energy trying to attain 100%-purity, and feel holier-than-thou about it, while the 99% spend 99% of their energy in helping Read More …
