You are drawing a long bow there @palmercr
My bees digest then regurgitate a combination of pollen, nectar and water which is mixed with their own internal enzymes to produce honey.
They secrete Wax and chew it into shape to allow for storage.
Until you are able to drink crude oil (or cellulose, coal etc) and vomit it up as a plastic polymer then your analogy makes no sense.
Honey is found and made 'in nature’
Oil Refineries (an essential step to inexpensive plastic production) don’t grow on trees.
Bees are quite intelligent… but not comparable to Humans… however, since Bees manage to thrive without Oil Refineries then perhaps that is also up for debate?
