According to a new report from leading #market #research and consulting firm Coherent Market Insights, the #global #vegan #meat market is set to surpass $6.5 billion by 2026.

The #report projects rapid #growth in the #veganmeat market, with a compound annual growth rate of 7.6 percent between 2018 and 2025.

What’s more, the research shows that more #consumers are expected to #shop for #plant-based meat in the coming years because of the many #health risks linked to consuming #animal meat.
 
#Factoryfarms across the nation are doing their best to keep our eyes off them; they know that the more the reality of #animalcruelty is made public, the less demand there will be for #animal products.

In an effort to shield #consumers from the #truth, so called #ag-gag laws that criminalize #filming of #animalabuse have swept across parts of the #UnitedStates. These #laws have even led to #terrorist charges against people taking footage of #farms.

But no one can stop the #drones! Mark Devries, director of #Speciesism: The Movie, teamed up with #MercyForAnimals to gather tons of footage of factory farms from the sky via drones.

 

My new Steam Controller arrived from Amazon in 10 days


The news is not so much my new games controller, but rather that in 10 days from when I ordered it on Amazon it shipped and passed through customs with its duty and VAT added, and was at my front door. My order from Takelot has apparently been delayed by another week (hopefully it arrives next week now).

Which goes to show that if an item is in stock at a local online retailer it will probably be quite quick, but if it is not in stock it could be quicker ordering from Amazon. In my case the Steam Controller was nowhere to be found in South Africa, just like when I went out a week back to try buy a Chromebook (none in any of the retail stores I visited).

Buying local is always my first option but my attempts seem to be rather frustrated by local retailers who don't know what a Chromebook is, don't stock the LG smartwatch, don't stock Google Home speakers, don't stock high-powered Anker chargers, don't do online customisation of T-shirt orders, etc.

It is a global economy now so our retailers should... Show more...
