June 9 / Don't Smoke In Cars Day

Feel free to make this date your own.

In practice, there's no infrastructure that supports or promotes Don't Smoke In Cars Day - Comic Company created the Day about 10 or so years ago when we were designing a giant SMOKEFREE CALENDAR wall chart for national distribution.

June 9th was chosen because it was the birthdate of a colleague who had lost both parents from cancer when she was young.

In short, the intention was (and still is) for people to pick up on it if they feel it's useful to their work. One year, Smokefree Warwickshire adopted it and it became their biggest publicity-garnering event of that year.

I hope this is useful info - but do contact us if there's anything more we can help with.
