Mark Hudspeth Wants His Workplace Smoke-free

Written on April 14, 2011 at 10:13 am, by Paula

Musicians across the country want their workplaces smoke-free.  More and more states and cities are offering a healthy and smoke-free work environment to all employees, including musicians.  Check out this great video from our neighbors in Texas. 

What makes Texas different  from Oklahoma is that they DO have local rights.  Cities across Texas can go smoke-free and Austin is a great example!  Smoke-Free Texas is currently working towards their state becoming 100% smoke-free. 

We have collected several stories, but we are looking for more.  It could be you.  Share your story with us.  Contact Paula at:  paula@breathethemusic.com

Everybody has the right to breathe smoke-free air, no matter where they work!

“Get a Job Someplace Else!”

Matt Stansberry tells us why he thinks everybody has the right to breathe smoke-free air. from Paula Warlick on Vimeo.

Meet Matt Stansberry.

Matt is a musician in Oklahoma who feels that everybody has the right to breathe smoke-free air.

Matt is also a longtime sufferer of asthma making playing in a smoking venue impossible and not really an option. Somehow his workplace is not protected by the same laws that protect other workers in Oklahoma. We think that is unfair. Do you?

Restoring local rights will create an even playing field for buisnesses that want to do the right thing and better yet, let this musician and father of two have a healthy work environment.

Scott Smith, proprietor of Tulsa’s only musical grocery store/coffee shop, tells us why he supports Musicians for Smoke-free Oklahoma/Breathe the Music.

Everybody (including blue jackalopes) have the right to breathe smoke-free air – no matter where they work!!!!

The Blue Jackalope is a place well worth visiting and we had one the best cups of coffee that we had drank in quite a long time. To find out more about this great place and see our “Breathe” sticker on their door (look hard to find it – lots of great stickers on that door!) – go to: http://www.bluejackalope.com/

Luchadors support Breathe the Music. Do you?

One of Tulsa’s newest places to hear great live music is Elote’.  Libby Auld tells us how much musicians tell her that they appreciate having a new venue that doesn’t have smoking.  We agree and feel that ALL workplaces should be smoke-free.  In the meantime, we hope that you go check out some of Oklahoma’ great local talent at this locally owned establishment that does care about the health of musicians.
