Singapore with World’s strictest Anti-Tobacco Laws has launched first outdoor smoking cabin on May 21, 2019. The smoking cabin has the ability to transform second-hand smoke emitted from cigarettes into clean air.

The cabins to be placed on Singapore’s streets will give smokers a private place to light up while keeping non-smokers away from the harmful second-hand smoke.

Launched by aviation sales and logistics company Southern Globe Corporation (SGC), the cabin can fit up to 10 people at one time and incorporates a three-layer filtration system.

Mr. Stefen Choo, director of SGC said: "I am a father of two, and there are many occasions when my family has been inconvenienced by the presence of cigarette smoke. I have always felt that there should be a better solution to contain cigarette smoke in Singapore."

The company has a plan to deploy 60 smoking cabins all around the island by year end.

The aim of smoking cabin is to stop smokers from sneaking a puff in public spaces. As per city’s Anti-Tobacco Law, smokers are liable to a composition sum of $200 (Rs 10,000) if caught smoking in prohibited places, or up to $1,000 (Rs 50,000) if convicted in court.
