Crop pollination is a polarising topic when it comes to assessing the ethics of the beekeeping industry. Non-vegans claim that vegans are hypocritical not to consume honey when they support migratory beekeeping. And vegans respond by re-explaining the definition of veganism.
In this conversation, we move beyond honey and beeswax and dive into the cruelty of the crop pollination business.
The topics that we cover are:
- The challenges of pollinating certain crops
- An overview of migratory beekeeping
- Monocrops versus polycrops
- The edges of veganism
- The most ethical options for buying plant foods
