The other day I went into Marshalls and saw a whole display with purses. I thought it was a bit strange, since this particular display was front and center and quite a bit away from the other racks full of purses. As I looked closer, there was a sign that read Vegan Purses. Now it made sense. Marshalls was making it easier for vegan shoppers to identify purses that coincide with their vegan values.
In addition to retailers and restaurants, other businesses are also finding a niche with vegan consumers. One of my favorite local designers, Deborah DiMare, is a leader in the vegan design space and her interiors, pictured here, are gorgeous.
So, in answer to my original question “Is Veganism Going Mainstream”, I think the answer is: “It’s already it already has”.
