Jumping on the Band Wagon…

Believe me I am all for people jumping on the GREEN band wagon with the exception of those who are simply using it as a marketing ploy. As I was flipping my way through a magazine, an ad caught my attention. The caption read “THE ONLY CIGARETTE MADE WITH 100% ORGANIC TOBACCO”. I’m sorry, but does anyone see the irony in that? In my most sarcastic tone, “How fabulous!”. It’s organic but still creates pollution, not to mention the carcinogens in your lungs. For the record, it is NOT a healthier choice to smoke organic cigarettes. I did appreciate their note on the bottom “No additives in our tobacco does NOT mean a safer cigarette” – you think?! Another note that made me chuckle… “SURGEON GENERAL’S WARNING: Quitting Smoking NOW Greatly Reduces Serious Risks to Your Health”. I think to be politically correct it should say Quitting Smoking ALWAYS Greatly Reduces Serious Risks to Your Health.

Anyone else know of any other ironic GREEN ads?
