Why buy pens that are tested on animals anyway?

When I read that my beloved Bic highlighters are likely tested on animals, it pretty much broke my heart. I am so particular about my pens and highlighters—I know, I know; it’s a total first world problem—and Bic is the only highlighter brand that I like to use. I don’t like their pens anyway, which is fine and won’t bother me a bit when I start boycotting right now—but my highlighters!

I have used 3M and Mead products in the past as well; these companies also test on animals. I won’t have any trouble leaving them behind, though. What I will find trouble with is finding the highlighters to replace the ones that I love!
