"Dear Chinese" instead of buying clean air can, you must learn to respect the environment, people and animals, the whole world would gain from this change.
but this is a useless utopia

We all have to do our part to stop air pollution no matter where we live.

Ridiculous, but a money maker and it's probably typical Chinese "knock-off" air. ROTFLMAO.

Simply too sad. Are the Chinese really this ignorant and backward? I guess they are.

Many Western companies and the Chinese Communist Party have made enormous profits exploiting China's cheap labor and lax regulations. The other side of the story, is a land that already has long-lasting environmental damage.

In the early 60s, I think it was, I read an ad selling canned London fog. It pictured a man wistfully smelling fog wafting out of an opened can. Thankfully I no longer believe it to be true.
