What does the plain packaging of tobacco mean?
The plain packaging of tobacco means that all tobacco products will be required to look the same.
All brand names would have to be written in a standard typeface, colour and size. And all other trademarks, logos, colour schemes and graphics would be banned.
Why should we support plain packaging?
Make packs less attractive to Young people.
Every year, another 340,000 children and young people in the UK are tempted to try smoking. And research has shown that they are more likely to be attracted by designed tobacco packs, than by plain packs.
With regulation in place to restrict television, radio and other advertising, packaging is becoming more and more important to the tobacco industry to help sell their products.
Shiny holograms, pretty pastel colours and wrappers are just some of the eye-catching pack designs available, and there is building evidence to suggest that these packs can attract and mislead children.
