Is your car smoke free?

Mine is!
I don't allow people to smoke in my car.

If you want kids to grow up with healthy lungs then join the British Lung Foundation's Campaign to help children exposed to cigarette smoke in cars.  It doesn’t matter whether you’re a smoker, ex-smoker or non-smoker – make a pledge to keep your car smoke-free when children are travelling with you.

Pledge with me at LungUK
Research shows that more than half of children in the UK have been exposed to cigarette smoke while travelling in a car. Smoking in a vehicle is particularly dangerous for child passengers as their lungs are still developing – and they are less likely to speak up and object.  Children are worried about this, they don't want to breathe cigarette smoke. Would you're child like to join the campaign? Rachel has.

Join Rachel and download a template from, write a letter about banning smoking in cars and send it to your MP.

These are just two simple ways to make a difference to the health of children. If you'd like to know more about the issues, the campaign and ways to support it then please visit Children's Charter

I'm amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's both
equally educative and engaging, and let me tell you,
you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something not enough folks
are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy that I came across this in my search for something regarding this.
