Cancer Research UK has launched a new campaign supporting the government's idea of considering making cigarette packs less attractive by removing all signs of branding.
Their website features a video (see link below) on chidren's responses to their glitzy style and branding. They urge you to watch the video to see why this is an opportunity not to be missed.
Plain packaging means removing all branding from cigarette packs, so that all packs, from all tobacco brands, will look the same.
The message on their website is clear ...
Plain packs won’t stop everyone from smoking, but they will give millions of kids one less reason to start.
But it’ll only happen if you make it happen. Please show your support while the Government is listening by signing the petition.
This campaign is about smokers and non-smokers, coming together to protect the next generation from taking up the habit in the first place.
To view the video and sign their petition in support of their campaign go to http://action.cancerresearchuk.org/ea-action/action?ea.client.id=149&ea.campaign.id=13114
