Message to Legislators and Talking Points
Cigarette butts are one of the most littered items found on Florida’s beaches. Please give cities the tools to provide smoke-free zones in public places and vote YES on SB 224.
(Include any local examples or stories on how this impacts your city)
- Cities strive to provide healthy and clean environments for their residents and visitors to live, work and play in – a healthy community equals a vibrant community.
- Providing smoke-free zones in public parks and beaches is one way to keep our cities beautiful by eliminating discarded cigarette butts and other smoking-related trash.
- Smoke-free zones also help protect residents and visitors from unhealthy and unwanted second-hand smoke, leading to more enjoyable visits to our parks and beaches.
