More than a quarter of Americans aged 25-34 saying they are either vegan or vegetarian. More and more people are now going for alternative choices that are free of animal byproducts, which means business is booming for vegan products retailers.
Beyond food, for many, veganism is a lifestyle. The majority of vegans avoid things that are produced through exploitation or cruelty to animals.
