World No Tobacco Day 2022

31 May 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.
