New Years Resolutions & Vegan Predictions for 2007

007 is set to be a very special year.

Author of Vegan Tony Bishop-Weston is predicting in the number of Vegans will double during 2007. Judging by the number of new vegan groups such as The Secret Society of Vegans, Vegan Secret Agents at Double 07, Vegan Pirates, new websites such as Supervegans, Da Vegan Code, and even a vegan political party called Animals Count hoping for seats in the European Parliament – he may be right.

And that's just the tip of the vegan iceberg - in Bristol, Tim Barford from hemp product company Yaoh is planning what he hopes will be the world's biggest ever vegan festival.

Meanwhile London Nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston is predicting 2007 will be the year of the seed and suggests that a good new year's resolution for health food stores should be 'stock more hemp!'

The Vegan Society had a big shake up at the AGM on World Vegan Day and big things are expected from the new directors, the dynamic new team and bigger premises in Birmingham during 2007.

Certainly the future of the planet is hanging in the balance – the more people who switch on to the solutions that veganism (and hemp!) have to offer then the more chance we have of avoiding our slide towards ill health, environmental catastrophe and oblivion.

Make a difference to people, human health, animal welfare and the environment - make your new years resolution to go vegan !!
