Cigarette-butt Bin Sculpture Topples Tobacco (CB STOPT) is a youth-led project delivered under the ACT YES initiative of DreBu. It is an arts and advocacy based community health project; a tobacco prevention campaign focused on youth and the community. Youth builds spectacular cigarette litter bin out of recycled material . The youth team members use social media tools to mobilize public support and community health education around tobacco prevention through contests and other interactive engaging methods.

The hand-built bins carry health messages around the adverse use of tobacco and substance abuse through creative words and artwork. An installation or unveiling event of the butt-bin sculptures are organized where all partners, youth leaders, participants and community members and other stakeholders are invited.
Through workshops and outreach works, the six project team leaders engage directly with over 100 youth (more youth and the public via social media campaigns) in Toronto in creating direct impact on tobacco prevention.

The project is made possible with support from the Investment in Youth Engagement (IYE) program of Toronto Public Health & Masaryk Cowan Community Recreation Centre (workshops space support). THANK YOU!
