Spending substantial time in a congested city can undoubtedly bring the topic of air quality to mind. With so many cars driving around emitting fumes, it’s certainly not difficult to draw a heavy distinction between an urban environment and the atmosphere of your last remote getaway. We all want to breathe the freshest air when we’re walking around town to shop or going out for a jog but it’s one of those issues that seems too massive to solve on an individual level. Plenty of groups and environmental agencies lobby for tighter regulations on air pollution but if you’ve ever wondered what you can do personally when you find yourself stuck in the city, it turns out there are a few options available.
Yes, upscale air is a thing
- Oxygen Bars
- A surge of oxygen bars have been popping up around big cities, and it’s no surprise as they have some of the worst air quality in the world. You may have even seen them on the menu during a trip to the spa. There’s quite a bit of contention about whether or not these bars offer any actual health benefits, with some people claiming numerous health benefits associated with regular usage and others believing that it could be dangerous. One thing we know for sure is that they are certainly popular with some athletes and celebrities.
- Canned Air
- No need to double check you read that correctly, there is indeed premium luxury canned air and oxygen now available on the market. Companies, such as Vitality Air, have begun packaging and distributing canned fresh air from remote locations that are supposed to have some of the best air quality in the world as well as some canned oxygen products that are sold natural or scented. There’s even a limited-edition diamond studded version if you’re feeling fancy.
- Personal Oxygen Bars
- If you find yourself enjoying the oxygen bar experience and wish you could take it home with you, you’re in luck! There are multiple companies now offering the devices and supplies in the private sector. They offer a wide range of scents to custom tailor your breathing experience and machines capable of catering to an individual or group for a shared experience.
