Reasons over 1000 Higher Education Institutions have Smoke-free Policies

Human impact

If you smell tobacco smoke, you are breathing in cancer-causing chemicals. Smoke-free campuses are healthier for everyone, including people with asthma and other respiratory problems.

Environmental impact

Cigarette butts contain all the carcinogens and nicotine that make tobacco use the leading cause of preventable death worldwide, yet trillions of butts are littered into our environment annually. Each cigarette takes 25 years to decompose.

The tobacco industry heavily targets college students

Big tobacco spends 41 million dollars per day promoting their products. The tobacco industry relies on young people initiating use of tobacco in order to replace the 430,000 tobacco users who die each year from tobacco-related causes. We want to prevent UB students from becoming daily addicted smokers.

We're a smoke-free campus, pass it on...

Becoming a smoke-free campus doesnít happen overnight. The simple reason for our policy is respect for each other and the environment. Help us spread the word when you see someone smoking or littering cigarette butts.
