We need your help. The tobacco companies are spending billions of dollars to hook new smokers, advertise to youth and replace dying customers. We need to educate youth, retailers and members of our communities on the harmful effects of tobacco marketing strategies. Talk to young people about point of sale tobacco advertising, ask your local retailers to remove tobacco advertising and show your support for retailers who have already removed advertisements at or below three feet by shopping in their stores and offering a word of appreciate for taking a stand. If you know of place where tobacco use might be a problem, contact us so we can assist in addressing it:
- Redwood County Department of Family and Human Services: (507) 637-4050
- Cottonwood County Department of Family and Human Services: (507) 831-1891
Start noticing tobacco advertisements in and around the community, and help educate retailers, youth and community members on the harmful effects of tobacco advertising.
If you are a retailer of tobacco products, we encourage you to consider removing all tobacco advertisements at or below three feet – the average height of a young child. Many retailers in our communities have already taken this step to reducing youth exposure to tobacco advertising.
