Local groups use social media to raise awareness on Earth Day


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – People are observing the 50th Earth Day celebration a little differently this year due to the pandemic, but local groups are still finding ways to spread their message.

The Vigo County Tobacco Prevention and Cessation Coalition would usually have an informational booth at Indiana State University’s Earth Day event.

This year the coalition is taking to social media with the hashtags #PoisonByThePound and #WasteTobaccoFilters to raise awareness about people littering cigarette butts and filters.
