|Building a generation of animal advocates|
|Michael A. Webermann|
Despite most people opposing animal abuse and many exploring vegan eating, people aren`t staying vegetarian or vegan; in fact, the overwhelming majority backslide on their vegan choices. Proposed reasons: When the emotional impact of why they went veg wears off they aren`t driven to stay veg; They perceive barriers between veganism being healthy, convenient, and familiar-tasting; Many institutions don`t offer adequate vegan options; and People see veganism as an individual choice rather than a collective or community action.
