The WHO’s World No Tobacco Day campaign sparks mixed reactions

On international World No Tobacco Day vaping industry representatives called out the World Health Organization (WHO) and governments for not supporting smoking alternatives – such as e-cigarettes – as a cessation tool, but the WHO’s campaign was celebrated by a wide number of charities and health organisations from across the world.

The WHO dedicated this year’s World No Tobacco Day, which fell on 31st May, to highlighting the environmental cost of tobacco. It released a report on the ecological impact of tobacco, showing that each year it costs the world 8m human lives, 600m trees and 22bn tonnes of water, with 84m tonnes of CO2 released every year.
