Cash to Ash Display

Overview

Award Winner!

This makeshift urn (4½" x 9") is filled with the cremated remains of a smoker’s bank account: $2,000 worth of soggy butts and worthless ashes. A pack-a-day smoker typically spends that much over a year’s time in support of this deadly habit. It’s the rough equivalent of setting $38 on fire every week—something most reasonable people would consider an act of sheer lunacy. Comes with presentation notes and reproducible worksheet that helps viewers calculate how much money is wasted on cigarettes in their area. A great teaching tool to stop smoking before it starts or to promote smoking cessation.

Award Winner!

Most of us don’t have money to burn, but this display is a clever way to show viewers that, if they smoke, they are doing just—burning money that could be better spent on clothes, vacations, and nights out instead of cigarettes, extra dry cleaning, and accompanying medical bills. The amount of ash in the jar represents how much ash would be produced by a smoker who smokes one pack of cigarettes a day for 1 year, or approximately $2,000 in cigarettes. Comes with presentation notes and reproducible worksheet that helps viewers calculate how much money is wasted on cigarettes in their area. Great for smoking cessation programs. 4½" x 9".
