I mean, in our perfect world it would be down 100 percent,
but progress is progress, and it means a difference is being made.
Good job to all you fellow vegans out there who have chosen the most compassionate way of eliminating animal cruelty and carbon foot prints from out environment:)
Not to discount the vegetarians, who also make a huge impact with their choice of diet and strife towards compassionate living:)

...... I have a bunch of veggie friends - they all have a bunch of other veggie friends - they all have.........
I strongly suspect the the published "Veggie Stat's" are heavily underestimating the number of folk who are now totally "off" of meat& hopefully moving towards eating only plants!
