Resources for Outdoor Smoke - Free Policies

Why are Tobacco-Free outdoor areas so important?

"Making your outdoor areas tobacco-free keeps them beautiful and free of pollution, protects children and animals from ingesting toxic cigarette butts, prevents secondhand smoke exposure, and maintains positive role-modeling for youth."

- The NY Tobacco-Free Outdoor Areas Toolkit
