Did you know that a 49-gram chocolate bar has a carbon footprint of about 169 grams? An interesting and important fact...especially during Halloween. But at The Imagineering Company we are more concerned about a different environmental concern—our verbal footprint. So, we conducted a verbal footprint audit of popular Halloween candies. Here are the results:
Verbal Footprint Audit of Halloween Candy*
Snickers: 2 Vgrams**
Nestles: 13 Vgrams
Hershey’s: 45 Vgrams
Reeses: 3.5 Vgrams
M & Ms: 0 Vgrams
Whatchamacallit: 51 Vgrams
Kit Kat: 2 Vgrams
Nerds: .1 Vgrams
Mounds: 2.3 Vgrams
*For a more complete list of candy and their associated verbal footprint please contact the Imagineering Company Audit Department.
**Vgrams=Verbal footprint measurement. Think of it like word fat. Too much leads to verbal obesity.
Q & A
What is a verbal footprint?
It is a measure of the impact our activities have on the environment, and in particular climate change. It relates to the amount of greenhouse gases produced in our day-to-day lives through talking, texting, tweeting and updating.
Are candies with a 0 verbal footprint better for the environment?
Yes. Less means more when it comes to your verbal footprint.
How should candies with a high Vi be disposed?
We suggest disposing of them digestively.
Can I determine the Verbal Footprint on my own?
Doubtful. It’s a very complicated algorithm. We suggest you have one of our licensed auditors help you.
