A great way to keep business owners in-the-know about the harms of secondhand smoke is…

to tell them!

Some of the businesses near you that still aren’t 100% smoke free might not know just how dangerous secondhand smoke can be. Stop by or give them a call to discuss the talking points below, and ask if they’re interested in having a “smoke-free night,” where smoking will be 100% prohibited at and around their business.

  • Secondhand smoke contains 7,000 chemicals -- many of which are toxic and cause cancer
  • Secondhand smoke causes 41,000 deaths every year in the US alone (including more than 7,000 lung cancer deaths)
  • Employees who work at establishments that aren’t 100% smoke-free -- like restaurants, bars, hotels, and casinos -- are especially at risk
  • Smoke-free policies are more likely to cover white-collar workers than blue-collar workers, so even if cities have some laws, they don’t necessarily protect all citizens

Upload the name of the businesses you contact about having a smoke-free night, or upload a pic from your smoke-free night.
