World No Tobacco Day was created by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1987 to draw global attention to the tobacco epidemic and the preventable death and disease it causes. The theme for World No Tobacco Day 2017, is “Tobacco – a threat to development.” The campaign is focused on promoting government and public actions to confront problems caused by global tobacco use and support health and development initiatives.
A WHO statement cites many global economic, physical and environmental health benefits of controlling tobacco including breaking the cycle of poverty, promoting sustainable agriculture and economic growth, combating climate change and saving lives.
The statement also lists statistics about tobacco use, including these:
- About 6 million people die from tobacco use every year, a figure that is predicted to grow to more than 8 million a year by 2030 without intensified action.
- Some 80% of premature deaths from tobacco occur in low- or middle-income countries, which face increased challenges to achieving their development goals.
- Each year, tobacco growing uses 4.3 million hectares of land, resulting in global deforestation between 2% and 4%.
- Tobacco manufacturing also produces over 2 million tonnes of solid waste.
This is an important day for us at TeaZa® Energy because many TeaZa® fans struggle with smokeless tobacco habits.
We understand that quitting smokeless tobacco is a little different than quitting smoking because of the need to have something in the mouth (an oral substitute) to take the place of the chew, snuff, or pouch.
This is why so many people looking to quit dipping love TeaZa®. Click Here to view some of our customer testimonials.
We’re doing our part to support the movement toward tobacco-free lifestyles. In 2015, we launched Operation Tobacco Free (OTF), a prosocial initiative that discourages tobacco use and inspires healthy lifestyles through education and community outreach. During its first year, OTF donated tens of thousands of dollars in product and sponsorships to youth sports teams, health programs and even a tobacco de-addiction study in partnership with a nonprofit chapter at a major university, Project RISHI at the University of Southern California (USCPR). TeaZa® Energy will proudly announce the final results of the study on World No Tobacco Day, May 31, 2017!
To apply for a sponsorship, take the pledge, become an ambassador and learn more about OTF visit TeaZaEnergy.com/OperationTobaccoFree.
