Wood Smoke - 

In recent years slow combustion heating has experienced a renaissance in Australia, so we needed to find a way to tell the community that wood smoke isn’t good smoke.

Very few people in the community know that wood smoke is harmful to their health; they think it’s natural so it must be okay, right? It’s actually a major cause of air pollution during the winter months.
