What is Not Around Us?

Not Around Us is about promoting an environment where it is easier for those who smoke to quit, and stay quit, and to help de-normalise smoking for the next generation.

The purpose of Not Around Us is to:

• Help to protect children and young people from second-hand smoke exposure.

• Contribute to the de-normalisation of smoking for children and young people.

• Reduce the environmental nuisance, cost of cleaning and damage that discarded tobacco products create.

• Signpost to HSE Quit services.
