(That's $47.9 Billion.) 15% of all U.S. fruit and vegetable sales were of organics last year. (Up 5.6% from 2017!) 95% of people who purchased a plant- based burger this year also ate meat. 600% rise in Beyond Meat's stock value since coming on the market this May. 172 Million people plan to celebrate Halloween this year. 17% will dress their pet. 9.3% of pet owners will dress their babies like pumpkins.
