World No Tobacco Day 2022

World No Tobacco Day takes place annually on 31 May. This year’s theme is “Poisoning our planet: tobacco exposed”. The harmful impact of the tobacco industry on the environment is vast and growing, adding unnecessary pressure to our planet’s already scarce resources and fragile ecosystems.

Tobacco kills over 8 million people every year and destroys our environment, further harming human health, through the cultivation, production, distribution, consumption, and post-consumer waste.
