(Scroll down for video) The owner of a British company that sells clean air to Chinese consumers, said that he is making a fortune because of the bad air quality in China and the good air quality in the United Kingdom.
27-year-old Leo De Watts, who owns and operates Aethaer, collects clean air by trapping it in large nets.
He then transfers the air to bottles. A bottle of clean air sells for around $115.
Watts said that the demand for British air is high due to terrible pollution problem in the country, especially in urban areas such as Beijing, Zhuhai, and Shanghai.
Watts admits that he initially rejected the idea of selling air as ridiculous. However, after learning about a Canadian company selling air from Canada to Chinese consumers, he decided to give it a try.
