Milk & Honey in Kamo and The Deck in Reotahi have joined 24 other Whangarei cafes that offer smokefree outdoor dining.
Following the success of the Fresh Air Project Whangarei, a three-month trial where cafes in the Whangarei CBD and Quayside made their outdoor dining areas smokefree, all Whangarei cafes were invited to offer smokefree outdoor dining.
“Offering smokefree dining was something we had talked about and wanted to do, so the invitation to join the others prompted us to go ahead,” Mike & Honey co-owner Helen Ludlow said.
“More importantly our customers have been very supportive.”
Lee Azote from The Deck Café & Store had already stopped selling tobacco last year and she said that smokefree outdoor dining was the next step.
Customer feedback collected as part of the Fresh Air Project Whangarei, from cafes in the CBD and quayside showed 94 percent support for smokefree outdoor dining.
Rowse said 72 percent of customers said they were more likely to visit a cafe again because they offered smokefree outdoor dining.
“Milk & Honey and The Deck have joined the growing trend for all dining areas in Whangarei to be smokefree,” says Bridget Rowse, Smokefree Advisor, Northland District Health Board.
Jim Callaghan, Cancer Society Northland congratulated the cafes for getting involved and supporting a smokefree future.
