Canned Air For Sale
(At first I thought this was a joke, but its no joke. Canned air is for sale.)
Canadian company which started out as a joke bottling Rocky Mountains air has seen its product fly off the shelves in pollution-hit China, with first shipment selling out in four days.
A Canadian start-up company bottling fresh air from the Rocky Mountains has seen sales to China soar because of rising pollution levels.
Vitality Air was founded last year in the western Canadian city of Edmonton but began selling in China less than two months ago.
“Our first shipment of 500 bottles of fresh air were sold in four days,” co-founder Moses Lam says in a telephone interview with the Telegraph.
A crate containing 4,000 more bottles is making its way to China, but he says most of that shipment has been bought.
A 7.7 Litre can of crisp air taken from Banff National Park in the majestic Rocky Mountains range sells for roughly 100 yuan ($15.47), which is 50 times more expensive than a bottle of mineral water in China.
Vitality Air’s biggest challenge is to keep up with demand because each bottle of fresh air is filled by hand.
Maybe those in China could use this idea with maybe a few more filters added considering the intake will be extremely polluted air.

Maybe they could "Can" their own and save a few bucks.
