Resource / Businessman sells £80 bottles of 'fresh air' to China

By / 08 Feb 2016

Leo De Watts, 27, sells air collected in the British countryside and ships it over to polluted cities Shanghai and Beijing, where the wealthy elite pay a hefty sum for a few seconds of inhalation.

Speaking to 5 live's Stepehn Nolan, he said it sounds crazy for us in the UK when we have an abundance of it, but anyone living near a clean lake you start bottling water and selling that off, all your friends are gloing to think your nuts.

For somewhere they dont have a great supply of it, it's amazing it can be sold as a luxury item.

What might the implications of this be? What related resources have you seen?
