Smoke Free Parks

Ontario’s Smoke Free Parks

Teen Action Committee & Advocates for Healthy Life

 

 

 

These ambitious teens presented the City of Ontario Smoke Free Parks initiative to the Ontario City Council in 2018. Thanks to these teens, the members of the Ontario community can now enjoy outdoor activities without the risk of second-hand smoke exposure. This initiative also succeeds in diminishing the environmental impact of tobacco, electronic delivery devices, and marijuana products and their litter. These teens are members of the Advocates for Healthy Life, a sub-committee of TAC (Teen Action Committee) which performed a cigarette butt collection at 4 local parks and collected over 2,200 cigarette butts in one hour.

 

Teen Action Committee (TAC) – TAC addresses community issues in a leadership role. Participants volunteer in a meaningful way that help to improve the community and develop strong ties with other teens through networking opportunities such as field trips, special events and monthly meetings.

 

TAC’s Advocates for Healthy Life – Raises awareness and works to improve the health of the community.
