Earth Day


Love the Earth, Live Tobacco Free


Earth Day is on April 22nd and campuses across the state will be hosting events during Earth Week to raise awareness about the devastating consequences to our environment of tobacco growing, curing, and use.  CYAN offers free support and resources to any college campus that would like to host an event and raise awareness on their campus.  By registering with CYAN for Earth Day, campuses will receive: free tote bags to give to students on campus, free Event Turnkey Kit with event ideas and forms, free educational materials (posters) to post around campus, and free cigarette butt pickup event protocols and forms.

Registration for this event is closed.

We encourage all campuses to host Cigarette & Tobacco Waste Pick-up Event Protocol in the weeks leading up to Earth Day.  Collected butts and pods can be displayed in a clear, smell-proof container at your event.  If you've collected and saved butts over the years, your display can show your campus community the progress that you've made over the years.  If this is your first time collecting butts, your display will show your campus that there is a problem that needs to be addressed.
