The product cycle of the commercial tobacco industry is a major contributor to environmental degradation causing the loss of 600 million trees and the production of large amounts of plastic waste including plastic wrappers, electronic cigarette components and cigarette filters which particularly problematic, as they take many years to biodegrade and are the most discarded waste item worldwide. Participants will learn how to engage with UN environmental processes like the Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Convention to Combat Desertification and particularly the negotiations for a UN international legally binding Treaty to End Global Plastic Pollution with the aim of phasing out cigarette filters.
