Share The Air Takes on the Spooky Trail 😄

Hey there! Jaila and Madison (seniors and third-year members of Y Street), writers of this lovely post, along with our two fellow members, Ahjana and Yyetta, are here from Brunswick High School to share our experience on participating in a Share The Air campaign event at the Spooky Trail in Alberta. This was our first off-campus Share The Air event this year!!

Share The Air is a campaign that promotes clean and healthier outdoor spaces, meaning a tobacco-free and e-cigarette-free environment. The Spooky Trail was a great opportunity to spread awareness about the harms of tobacco litter and exposure to secondhand smoke and vape aerosol in outdoor public places. Share The Air has been very hands-on with tackling this issue by promoting tobacco-free and vapor-free outdoor areas and offering tobacco-free signs to local Parks and Recreation Departments across Virginia to post in places such as parks and walking trails.

This event was important to us because the Spooky Trail was hosted at a public playground and trail where youth gather. We want to promote clean air for their health and well-being. We also want to inform the public about this issue and its effect on our community to work together on creating 100% tobacco-free outdoor spaces. Our ultimate goal is to encourage our local Parks & Recreation Department to adopt a tobacco-free and e-cigarette-free outdoor policy. We are very excited to continue raising awareness about Share The Air in our community!
