The upward trend towards the plant-based lifestyle is continuing to evolve. A new study has just been released that shows how much Americans following a plant-based diet has increased over 15 years.

From 290,0000 to nearly 10 million, this increase in veganism and plant-based diets is truly an inspirational statistic. The study, by Ipsos Retail Performance, shows that over 9.7 Million Americans now follow plant-based diets.

The most reluctant states to follow a vegan diet seems to be Mississippi, followed by South Dakota, Alabama and North Dakota. And, the consistent vegan state is Oregon, followed by Vermont, Washington and California.

It’s great news for the animals and our planet. The high profile awareness driven by celebrities and the increased availability of meat alternative products in stores and restaurants have made things easier for everyone.
