Chinese Billionaire Sells Canned Fresh Air to Raise Awareness about the Environment

It was bound to happen at some point, I guess. Chen Guangbiao, a famous  Chinese businessman and philanthropist, has recently launched a line of  canned fresh air collected from various parts of China and Taiwan. The product  is called “Chen Guangbiao: Nice Guy” and sells for about $0,80.

It’s no secret China has a huge air pollution problem, but while authorities  don’t seem to be taking any action to resolve it, billionaire Chen Guangbiao,  aka “Brother Biao” is trying to raise awareness in a very original way. He has  recently started selling canned fresh air collected from “revolutionary” areas  of China, including Jinggang Mountain in Jiangxi Province and some ethnic  minority areas and Taiwan. ”One only has to open the can, directly ‘drink’ it or put the nose close to the can to breath deeply,” Chen said. He also  mentioned there is a chip in the can, and during the “packaging process”, when  the negative oxygen ions reach a certain concentration the lid is triggered by  the chip and closed. And since the air is compressed, it stays inside the can  even without a lid, the quirky philanthropist claimed. Before the big  launch of ”Chen Guangbiao: Nice Guy” canned air, Brother Biao said he was  confident of its success, because there are lots of people in big  cities inhaling air mixed with vehicle exhaust every day who are dying for  a breath of fresh air.
