Our World is Being Burned By Tobacco

Every step of a tobacco product’s life cycle degrades our planet and decimates our natural resources

The tobacco industry doesn’t just hurt our health. It tears down trees, erodes soil and produces toxic waste. And that’s even before its deadly products are sold to consumers. Once used, tobacco products pollute the air, poison fish and marine life and clog beaches and waterways.

Yet, tobacco companies try to distract from these environmental harms by putting on a public show, donating to sustainability-focused initiatives and reporting on environmental “standards” they often create themselves. This environmental destruction is just one of the ways Big Tobacco harms everyone, not only those who use its products.
