Livekindly find out that 2018 has been a successful year for veganism, with plant-based diets influencing supermarket shelves, restaurant menus, legislation, and reportedly even baby names.

Other popular names are inspired by herbs commonly used for seasoning plant-based dishes. Saffron saw a 31 percent rise in popularity for girls and Rosemary gained a 20 percent rise. Sage was up by 15 percent for boys.The statement notes that Millennial and Gen Z parents are naming their children after their “passions and values in 2018.” Reports this year revealed that 52 percent of Brits are consuming more vegan food due to ethical and environmental concerns, and 60 percent of Americans are reducing their meat consumption amid health and financial concerns. With even Collins Dictionary listing “vegan” as a top word for 2018, it is evident that plant-based eating is a major 2018 trend.
