China is importing cans of fresh air from Canada
This might seem like a joke, but this start-up business that Canadians Troy Paquette and Moses Lam started last year, has become a lucrative business. They are selling canned air, more specifically fresh air from the Rocky Mountains in Banff National Park, Canada.

It may sound crazy that someone would actually pay for canned air, but the startup has found a market very interested in the product, China.
“A gag gift, that’s how it started off, but you know what? There’s actually a lot of demand for this in … highly polluted countries,” Lam told the Canadan National Post.
