Low plastic office: alternative to highlighters

What would a low-plastic highlighter — a felt-tipped pen for accenting text passages — look like? And why do we need them. Half the time, when I want to highlight a few words or lines on page, I just circle or underline them.

With what? My red pencil, of course. (Call it a carry over from my grad school assistant days.) I don’t know what the lead is made of, but the pencil is wood and I’ve seen them available loose. Once I made that connection — I also use green and non-photo blue — I stopped using highlighters. And my pencil cup has thinned out, too.
