Culturally, it seems like we are moving farther and farther away from tobacco-based products, and embracing more cannabis- and naturally-derived products in an effort to better our health and habits.
The point is, times and trends are changing in the industry and your shop should change with them. Let’s explore the option of tobacco-free products and what it means to be tobacco-free.
Tobacco-free policies prohibit the use of tobacco, nicotine, or any tobacco-like products, plants or substances (natural or synthetic).
Smoking continues to become less socially acceptable and in contrast, tobacco use rates continue to decline. You can especially see this decline in 2012, when 28 states banned the use of tobacco products in public places and general workplaces.
You see, tobacco-free policies aren’t new. There have been many laws, lawsuits and policies surrounding the use of tobacco. In fact, as part of a health and wellness initiative, many companies like U-Haul are now implementing or have implemented tobacco and nicotine-free policies among their staff as well.
With these tobacco-free policies in place, it has both created and continues to create different habits in users. Whether they are a smoker trying to kick the habit, or simply prefer the tobacco-free fad, you should capitalize on the wonderful world of tobacco-free products.
