Even for those big on the promise of electronic cigarettes, it can sometimes be easy to forget just how big and how bad conventional cigarettes are for people, the environment, and the economy. InsuranceQuotes.org has taken to reminding us with the first of its video series Hidden Costs.
The goal of the Hidden Cost series is look at products common to most people’s day and grade their social return (an admittedly hazy term that could use some definition). Cigarettes are an easy target for the series to launch on, but the facts are still worth checking out and concisely organized. I for one am curious about what they’ll grade iPhones, music programs like Pandora and Spotify, social internet experiments like Facebook and Reddit, and even pizza delivery. It might sound crazy, but it’s the obscure and unexpected that may teach us the most about where our financial, environmental, and social resources are going.
Anyway, take a look.
