'Canada may be struggling with low oil prices, but China's latest environmental crisis is proving to be a lucrative opportunity for another of its natural resources — Rocky Mountain air.

Alberta-based Vitality Air has been cashing in on Beijing's worsening air quality problems, selling aluminum cans of "fresh clean air and oxygen" from the picturesque Rocky Mountains for around $10 to $20 each. '





'Not a joke

Founders Moses Lam and Troy Paquette admitted to Canadian media that the project first started as a joke, selling their first sealable food bag of air for 99 cents on eBay. The then sold a second bag that raked in $168 Canadian dollars ($122).

They launched Vitality Air shortly afterward. '

ok.. so we have ppl buying water and air.

it is very strange to see that happening..

for these things to become 'normal'.. it is very disturbing.

i wonder what will be considered 'normal' in even just 10 years..

Well now would be the perfect time to start selling stuff. Freight prices are way down. Read just the other day the price for a 20 foot container between China and the EU is 200 something dollars.
