Chinese buy up bottles of fresh air from Canada


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.


Out of all the science fiction movies to become science fact, Spaceballs was among the more unexpected.


It is great to see our Canadian neighbors inventing a way to get some Chinese money. I thought only Americans could invent something as useless as the pet rock.

Yes, I know that we are all residents of North America.


May the Schwartz be with you.


Well, I hope they’re not bottling the December air…I’ve been to Edmonton in December and it’s darn freezing there right now.





The Rocky Mountain High brand is considered the better but at a slightly higher fee. :thumbsup:


I don’t know where in the US would have the cachet of pure, Canadian Mountain air. Canada is so sparsely populated that most of its air hasn’t even been polluted by people breathing it :smiley:


So are they bottling up or are they using soda cans? Like in Spaceballs, I would love to pop open a fresh, cold can from the Rockies… Sounds too much like Coors.

What’s next, we start building spaceships that can reach Ludicrous Speed? :smiley:


Do you get a Rocky Mountain High with this? :smiley:



I can produce bottles of fresh Kentucky air all day long, and would be willing to sell them as cheap as $10. a bottle…any takers…??


Even air from Kentucky coal mines or a horse barn might sell in parts of China. Their air is so heavy with smog that it is too expensive to ship out.
