1 in 5 Brits choose Vegan Christmas Dinner

Vegan is not just catching on here in America. Other countries are even more enthusiastic. According to a recent poll, 20 percent of people in Great Britain will prepare an entirely vegan Christmas dinner this year. One in five people surveyed said that they would prepare entirely vegan products this year, even if only one of their guests will be vegan.

While 2-3% of Brits are currently vegan, research shows that the number of vegans and vegetarians is growing rapidly, and they look set to make up a quarter of the British population by 2025.  Every year, hundreds of thousands of Brits sign up for the Veganuary pledge to embrace plant-based diets for a month, and the numbers are growing rapidly every year with 72% of them planning to continue with a vegan diet even after Veganuary. The environmental message has really been taken to heart, and of course the British have always been big animal lovers, leading to a lot of interest in how to save both the animals and the Earth.

The side benefit to this is that they will also benefit their health as well. Come on America, we can do this too!
