Stamping out smoking!
PRINCETON — The Bureau/Putnam County Health Department has started a “play hard, breathe easy” campaign to promote tobacco-free parks and playgrounds in the two-county area.
The health department’s Public Health Educator Becky Piano said the tobacco-free parks campaign is one of several initiatives funded through the “We Choose Health” community transformation grant received through the Illinois Department of Public Health.
In addressing tobacco-free parks and playgrounds, Piano said she has walked around area playgrounds and seen many cigarette butts on the ground. Playgrounds and parks should be places where children can play without being subject to second-hand smoke. Second-hand smoke is also dangerous for adults as well, especially people with asthma or respiratory concerns, she said.
