RE: articles about bees, honey and environment

well, i found this article online and it stated:
"The difference between vegans and nonvegans, however, is the element of intent. Vegans consciously strive to do no harm to any sentient life, including insects. This does not mean that vegans do not hurt others inadvertently, but that it is never their aim to do so.
... honey is nevertheless considered an animal product. Because there are numerous alternatives to honey, from a vegan perspective there is no justifiable rationale for using it." This, is from vegsource.com.
I think I need to read more literature on veganism in general, that would be inspiring to me!
Anyway, I feel good about at least, understanding the bee/honey isssue a little more. It's hard because so many people still don't understand what is wrong with taking for example, honey / milk because 'it doesn't hurt the bee or the cow.'
going to try and find some agave nectar tomorrow and see how that tastes!
