Join the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids’ in their latest campaign to fight Big Tobacco by supporting tobacco-free retailers. An estimated 375,000 retail stores still sell tobacco products in the United States – that’s 375,000 stores where youth are exposed to tobacco marketing. When Big Tobacco spends over 90 percent of its annual $8.8 billion marketing budget at the point-of-sale, it’s no wonder that it increases youth tobacco use.
It’s time to support retailers like CVS, Target and Wegmans who choose not to sell tobacco products by shopping tobacco-free – and encouraging retailers like Walgreens, Walmart and Rite Aid to follow suit. Responsible retailers should not be in the business of selling tobacco products that addict so many children and cause so much death, disease and destruction. Retailers can help save lives and create a tobacco-free generation by choosing not to sell tobacco products.
