Learn More About Outdoor Tobacco Laws and Restrictions

The outdoors is where people can exercise and enjoy leisure time – unaffected by secondhand smoke. At Tobacco-Free Western New York, we’re working hard to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy fresh air, free of dangerous toxins and hazards found in tobacco products.

With 400+ municipalities in New York State passing regulations on tobacco use in outdoor recreational areas, TFWNY is dedicated to – literally – clearing the air for our parks, playgrounds, beaches, campgrounds and patios. From picking up cigarette butts in parks to contacting your local elected officials, every action brings us one step closer to accomplishing our goal.
