Therefore, the future for betting companies and the online gambling industry seem bright and to only grow larger as we enter a more digitalized world.

The American market

The US Supreme Court lifted the federal ban on sports betting on May 14th, 2018, and that was huge for the sports betting market, with many sites taking advantage of this like https://superlenny.com/in/sports-betting/.

Sports betting has been illegal in the USA but with the Supreme Court lifting the federal ban, it is now up to the individual states to decide whether or not it should be allowed to bet on sports. This has meant that a lot of states have already legalized sports betting. This also plays into the growth of the online gambling market and as more states legalize sports betting it has the chance to grow even further. At the moment, more than 20 states have legalized sports betting in the US, and more are expected to legalize it. In September 2021, sports betting is officially legal in Canada. Many betting sites operate in Canada, but residents, are now free to wager on any sport. However, the responsibility of regulation lies with the province, and laws vary with the jurisdiction.

What this means for the global market can only be speculated about but the change of it having a negative effect is equal to none. The growth of the sports betting market is only going to continue to grow as more states legalize sports betting.

With multiple brands coming up with new standards of vegan and sustainable beauty, many consumers are left confused and doubting the authenticity of these claims.

By Plabita Sharma

The World Vegan month of November usually brings with itself an increased amount of dialogue and searches about Vegan lifestyle, sustainable living and clean beauty. Before pondering any further, it is important to understand what the Vegan lifestyle is and how it goes beyond the concept of consuming a plant-based diet. Veganism essentially is a lifestyle that is driven by compassionate choices and an increased awareness of one's actions on the world. Thus motivated by the two, a vegan individual usually carefully curates their day-to-day practices in a manner that does little to no- harm to the planet, the people and all of its inhabitants.

Beauty as industry has time and again been scrutinised for its effects on the consumers and the ecosystem - this can be during the manufacturing process or the effect it has on the consumer's thought processes. Now, as the world moves towards adopting Global Sustainability Goals, committing to a world that works with the natural resources instead of against them - it is only fair for each individual to be curious about making the right choices to make their beauty bag as consciously curated as possible. With multiple brands coming up with new standards of vegan and sustainable beauty, many consumers are left confused and doubting the authenticity of these claims. So here is a quick guide that can help you make the right choices:

Vegan and cruelty free labels: Keeping true to the traditional meaning of Vegan - any vegan beauty product means that it is completely plant based and has no animal ingredients or any of their by-products like honey, beeswax, dairy product etc. Similarly, cruelty-free as a label means that the ingredients or the final product did not test on animals or harm any animals during the production process. One way to test the authenticity is to check if these products are legally certified by PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), or verified by Vegan organisations as The Vegan Society and others. Cruelty-free and vegan products are also generally categorized by having cleaner and gentler formulas as they are mostly deprived of harsh chemicals and solvents.
