Wathaurong Aboriginal Health Service & Cooperative goes Butt Litter Free with No BuTTs Personal Ashtrays
Wathaurong Aboriginal Health Service & Cooperative is distributing No BuTTs award winning logo printed Personal Ashtrays to their patients and visitors as part of their "Going Smoke Free the right way!" campaign.

Located in North Geelong, approx 100 kms south west of Melbourne, Wathaurong Aboriginal Health Service & Cooperative provides the community with Services and Resources to help both Indigenous and mainstream providers in referring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander clients to local, culturally relevant services in both rural and urban areas of Victoria. 

Wathaurong Aboriginal Health Service's Personal Ashtray offer advice on quitting smoking options
Wathaurong's Closing the Gap Co-ordinator confirmed their order for 2,000 logo printed Personal Ashtrays saying she was very confident that providing Personal Ashtrays would dramatically reduce the cigarette butt litter problem which has increased since W.A.H.S. went Smoke Free earlier in 2012.

"Wathaurong Aboriginal Health Service & Cooperative is setting an excellent example for health service providers by distributing No BuTTs Personal Ashtrays for health service providers and installing No BuTTs Eco-Pole Freestanding Bollard Ashtrays in Butt Out Zones." said No BuTTs Managing Director, Jack Jacobson.

"The reality is that people smoke and when services like drug and alcohol treatment are provided, the smoking rates are much higher. Wathaurong Management understands that going Smoke Free doesn't at all mean that people stop smoking.  They just go somewhere else and if they can't do the right thing with their butts, they're going to do the wrong thing."

"No BuTTs Personal Ashtrays are now being used by over 500 Health Service locations to eliminate their patients, visitors and staff's butt litter because Personal Ashtrays allow smokers to safely and easily dispose of their butts the right way, no matter where they go to smoke." said Jack.

"We didn't want to make our smokers butt litter our neighbour's problem when we went Smoke Free and No BuTTs Personal Ashtrays were the perfect solution." said Gwenda Black, W.A.H.S.Coordinator. "Because we much prefer if our people didn't smoke we've also printed support for quitting smoking information on the sides of our Personal Ashtrays."
