World No Tobacco Day campaigns

Each year, May 31st is observed as World No Tobacco Day, a commemoration of an official public health campaign by the World Health Organization. Brands too have aligned themselves with the cause by rolling out World No Tobacco Day campaigns every year to spread the word.

Over 6 million people lose their lives each year due to tobacco-related ailments and the figure is said to rise to more than 8 million per year by the year 2030. Countering this disturbing trend by raising awareness about the many harmful effects of tobacco use, even on the people around the user, WHO held the first World No Tobacco Day in 1987. With their World No Tobacco Day campaigns, brands are urging their consumers to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
