Smoke-Free Housing Magazine debuts

For the past year, Jacque Petterson has been collecting stories and links to news articles about smokefree housing – public housing complexes that have gone smokefree, lawsuits filed over secondhand smoke issues in multi-unit dwellings, even information about fires caused by cigarettes.

Now she has put those in Smoke-Free Housing Magazine, an online publication that has just debuted. Petterson, who also runs a website called Smoke-Free Housing Consultants, writes:

It has been a longtime dream of mine to create a magazine that addresses smoking concerns, especially in multi-family housing. I hope that by combining online articles with articles written by those working on this problem around the world in an easy-to-read and graphic-inclusive format we can gain more attention to the problems and solutions, encouraging more smoke-free housing.

Sample articles include “Smoking Ban Proposed for Parthenon Towers,” Some Utah Public Housing Units Are Snuffing Out Smoking” and “New Push for Smokefree Apartments in Washington” (Washington state, alas).

Check it out and enjoy.
