As long-time One Step members know, the average person in the United States is now eating more animals than ever before in history.
But what about other countries? Not just developing countries like China and India (where consumption of animals is soaring) but countries with significant vegan movements?
Israel has been called "the first vegan country" for years. However, looking at the actual numbers shows that the average person in Israel eats more chickens than anyone else in the world.
The United Kingdom is also touted as a huge vegan success story. However, our friend Matthew Glover (the brains behind Veganuary) just sent us the sobering chart above.
As you can see here, 2018 is even worse:
If you have read One Step's reasoning, you know we care only about reducing suffering as much as possible. It is facts like these – not just in the U.S. or China, but also Israel and the UK – that lead us to reject the standard advocacy and focus instead on a message that can actually impact suffering.
As always, thanks so much for being a part of this advocacy. We look forward to working with you going forward.
