Why not promote it? A portion of its constituents are a renewable resource unlike petroleum.

I question why to promote vegtable based inks at all for P2. There has not
been enough evidence that prove these inks have an environmental benefit over
non-vegetable inks. Ink in itself is one of the smallest components in a
printing job so the issue of waste is small, emissions are small ...

What are the concerns to raise the issue of promoting vegetable inks?
