Canadian company Vitality Air sells bottles of air from Banff and Lake Louise to the Chinese. Bottles range from $15.85 for regular "Banff air" up to $18.50 for "premium oxygen" and are reportedly selling really well.

Vitality Air was co-founded by Moses Lam and Troy Paquette in 2014. They travel to high rocky mountains in Alberta, western Canada for the fresh air, which is home to over 600 lakes.

In the mountains, massive cans are filled through clean compression with pure revitalising air, something that is not found in Beijing during the harshest days.

On their website Vitalityair.com it says: 'We strive to provide a premium quality necessity that isn't always available.
