2017 Annual Report | The Year in Review
Posted by Unicorn Goods
As we conclude 2017, we are reminded by the opportunities we have had to make a difference. We are honored every day to be able to help people make choices that are in line with their ethics. We believe that people are inherently good, and that small choices add up. Together, we are working toward a world in which no animal suffers unnecessarily.
This year has been a big one for us. From helping people buy vegan to helping vegan companies grow, we love every second of the work we do. Here's an overview of what the year has meant for us.
In 2017, Unicorn Goods...
helped nearly 200,000 people from nearly 200 countries shop vegan
Unicorn Goods was used over 200,000 times by nearly as many people in 2017. This number of vegan shoppers is up 166% from 2016, a testament to the increasing popularity of vegan products and a changing global mindset.
- launched the Best of Vegan Awards™
We launched the world's most comprehensive vegan awards series for products and honored hundreds of vegan brands, products, and leaders. Winners across more than 40 categories were celebrated on World Vegan Day after nearly 35,000 votes were cast. Over 35,000 people watched the Best of Vegan Awards™ video which was hosted on Facebook, Youtube, and Vimeo, and promoted across a wide audience.
