No wonder it costs so much – Owl

There’s nothing quite like a walk along the coast of Cornwall – the sound of the waves, the breathtaking views and the amazing fresh air…

And now a business is selling bottles of coastal air from different locations across England – including one advertised as being from the ‘Cornish coast’, although the source is in Devon.

Coast Capture Air advertises for 500ml bottles of air for £60, while the 700ml bottles cost £75.

Your fresh air can come from Suffolk, the Isle of Wight or Hartland Point – which the company says is on the Cornish coast.

The website states: “Each Coast Capture Air signature glass bottle holds fresh coastal air in its purest form, direct from the natural and unspoiled coast lines of Great Britain. Our select Air capturing locations are typically rural, unpolluted by man or machinery and often remote and hard to reach.

“Such idylls are rare. Our Collections are therefore of precious and exceptional quality. Bottled at source: Hartland Point, Cornish Coast, Great Britain”

Hartland Point is on the north coast of Devon, about 16 miles west of Bideford.

Coast Capture Air says its glass bottles of coastal air were initially created as a talking point and souvenir – but that some customers now make use of the fresh air in their every day lives.

“The concept of being able to breathe freshly bottled UK coastal air soon sparked interest from polluted areas around the world,” its website reads.

“Some people continued to purchase our bottles as souvenirs. Others inhale the fresh coastal air at home on a daily basis. They told us that it helped counter the harmful effects of air pollution. Many customers live in in smog-filled cities across the world where the pollution levels are very high.

“Our customers like to inhale the cool refreshing air prior to a mindfulness session and yoga practice.”

Some testimonials have also been shared on the website.

Feng Mian, from Beijing, said: “A good product. Well worth buying. I purchase each month.”

Erica S, from California, wrote: “I breathe my Coast Capture Air during my daily mindfulness meditation. I know it makes a real difference to my breathing and I love that is clean air from Great Britain.”
