Why Healthier Air For All Matters to Me
My name is Logan and I attend East Ascension High School. I have been in Next Era for 2 years, and I have been on the Next Era leadership team for 1 year. I really enjoy working on Healthier Air for All. The goal of the Healthier Air For All Campaign is to work on eliminating secondhand smoke in workplaces.Non-smokers who are exposed to secondhand smoke face many of the same dangers as those who smoke. My family and I travel very often so we need hotels to stay in that have more smoke-free rooms. Sometimes the smoke-free rooms are full, which forces us to sleep in smoking rooms. Children and other non-smokers should not have to be forced to sleep in smoke filled rooms on their vacation because that’s the only option their families have.
That’s why I work on the Healthier Air for All Campaign. The more we spread the message of the campaign, the more people in our communities can understand the situation at hand and the quicker secondhand smoking in workplaces can be eliminated. Smoke-free workplaces create healthier employees and customers. No one should have to choose between their paychecks and health!
