Full disclosure: This is for a project in my philosophy class, where you choose a cause and follow it for a few weeks and report back on how it changed your life, what have you. I decided to take a road less traveled and choose animal testing as my cause. What that said, animal testing: A popular way to fight animal testing is to simply not buy products from companies that test on animals, so I came here to ask for experiences from people who likely have been doing this for a lot longer than I have. How did you learn about this? How/when/why did you choose to stop supporting these sorts of things? Where do you buy your products? Are there any that simply don't have a viable alternative, 'cause they're too expensive/suck/don't exist? How's it affected your life? Do you do anything else to fight animal testing in any way?
