tobacco free

Tobacco Free CNY wants to bring awareness about how air quality in apartment buildings may become compromised during the cold winter months when tenants smoke indoors.  It’s estimated that up to 65% of the air in multi-unit housing is being distributed through shared ventilation and heating systems.

   Syracuse University officials have taken the first step in going completely smoke-free. A letter was sent out earlier today to Syracuse students, faculty, and staff, stating that Syracuse University will become a smoke-free campus beginning July 1, 2015.  Officials say this will allow the campus to provide a healthy environment for students to thrive.  All Syracuse University owned buildings will be going smoke-free including all outdoor venues with the exception of the Carrier Dome, the Sheraton Hotel, Drumlins, and Syracuse Stage.
