Vans laces up for Legacy’s “Truth” smoking prevention campaign.
Since national public health foundation Legacy introduced its first antismoking campaign, Truth, back in 2000, the number of teens picking up the habit has dropped from 23 percent to 9 percent. That’s less than the number of VHS tapes sold in 2013. But, as the latest Truth spot says, the fight isn’t over. That’s why Vans has teamed up with the smoking prevention campaign to launch a limited edition collection of footwear and apparel comprising a Vans shoe, tee and socks, all adorned with a “smoke monster” design.
