We're determined to stop secondhand smoke where it hurts us most, here is what we're facing:
40% of children ages 3-11 are exposed to secondhand smoke regularly
41,000 Americans die every year from secondhand smoke exposure.
Couples have a 53% increased chance of divorce when one is a smoker
23% of property value is lost due to secondhand smoke fumes
53% of smokers say they have been discriminated against
To inspire healthier communities by connecting people to responsible smoking solutions that save lives and end stigma.
We're working to preserve the choices of those who smoke while respecting the choices and private space of those who don’t.
We believe in personal rights as much as we believe in clean air and a conscientious society.
At HUSH, we're using dynamic fluid principals and engineering innovation in our first product to allow those who smoke to do so with dignity and less judgement.
As more smokers use HUSH, this leads to cleaner air and quite possibly, a healthy conversation among smokers and non-smokers in which they discover common ground and belief in mutual respect and personal rights.
In the future, we aim to create solutions for secondhand smoke in commercial indoor settings such as casinos, hotels and rental cars.
