"Wellness Lives Here" Campaign

Aug 6, 2018

NBATC Resources for Wellness-Supportive 100% Tobacco-Free Environments

The New Brunswick Anti-Tobacco Coalition (NBATC) recently collaborated on the creation of a new awareness campaign named "Wellness Lives Here". The key message of this campaign is that wellness is about more than individual lifestyle choices. Wellness is shaped by the people around us and the places where we live, learn, work and spend our free time. When we work together to make healthy choices more available, accessible and desirable, they become, with time, the natural choice, every time.

Tobacco-free living is an important aspect of wellness. The impact of supportive environments on our ability to lead a tobacco-free life is well documented, whether it is by limiting exposure to second and third-hand smoke, supporting those who are looking to quit smoking or implementing laws and regulations limiting access to tobacco products. The NBATC is proud to be part of The Wellness Movement and to have provided our input so that tobacco-free living could be highlighted in this province-wide campaign.

You can help promote tobacco-free living by voicing your desire to live, work and play in wellness supportive 100% tobacco-free environments! You can choose to live tobacco-free by refusing to smoke cigarettes, e-cigarettes, and vaping products as well as by refusing to use other commercial tobacco products. You can also make or support changes at home, work and in your community so that you are not exposed to second and third-hand smoke. Here are some resources to get you started:

Tobacco-Free Environments: Schools
Tobacco-Free Environments: Colleges and Universities
Tobacco-Free Environments: Workplaces
Tobacco-Free Environments: Homes
Tobacco-Free Environments: Multi-Unit Dwellings (Apartments and Condos)
Tobacco-Free Environments: Outdoor Public Spaces
