By Elizabeth LangerPublished June 08, 2018 05:04:10When you’re not having a beer or talking politics with your friends, you can get your hands dirty.
That’s the goal of the Smoke Machine Collective, which is based in Toronto.
It’s one of the most active and visible companies in Canada, with an annual turnover of more than $500 million.
Its founder, Mike O’Brien, says the Smoke machine company is an attempt to provide some basic services to those in need of a smoke machine.
It just doesn’t work that way.””
If you’re smoking, you’re still addicted to that, and you need a way to get off of it, and a smoke is a smoke.
It just doesn’t work that way.”
The Smoke Machine collective has become an industry leader in the Toronto area, with more than 50 machines installed in the last two years.
Its business model relies on volunteers to take orders, and the group has raised over $1 million in its first year.
The Smoke machine has a reputation for being friendly and welcoming to people who smoke, said O’Brian, who also runs the Smoke-free Toronto campaign.
“People that are in a position to smoke have no choice but to be a part of this business,” he said.
Smoke machine owners and owners of other types of smoking paraphernalia are also encouraged to use the machines to help keep the streets and neighbourhoods smoke-free.
The Smoke machines have also been embraced by the city’s homeless population, with people turning to them as a way of keeping clean during the summer months.
In the past two years, the Smoke machines, which are made by a company called Cottages Smoke Machine, have provided services to the homeless, including the installation of a “sweat-free” tent, as well as the distribution of free condoms and other products to the residents.
The group’s website also encourages people to “use the Smoke Machines and Smoke-Free Toronto to support the local homeless population.”
It encourages people who are interested in using the machines for themselves to reach out to the Smoke Makers of Canada.
More to come.
