Smokefree homes and cars

Smokefree Homes (2004)

Children are especially vulnerable to second-hand smoke, and New Zealand research shows that young people exposed to second-hand smoke at home are more likely to become daily smokers themselves.

The Smokefree Homes campaign (launched in April 2004) encouraged smokers to protect their children from second-hand smoke by ‘taking the smoke outside’.
