Date: February 25, 2020, 10-10:30 pm

Join us on The Public Good! Did you know cigarette butts are the #1 form of picked up litter in the world? Once a butt is tossed it’s with us for decades and does not bio degrade. This is not only a health concern but an environmental concern. We'll hear from representatives from Roswell Park's Tobacco Control initiative and two of their community and student partners aiming to reduce the prevalence of cigarette butt litter in WNY.

Be sure to tune in live on Power 96.5 WNY/Mix 1080AM at 10pm, and on PPG’s Facebook page at 1pm on Tuesday, February 25th. You won’t want to miss it!
