Now, fresh air bottled in Britain

London, March 12 (IANS) Fresh air has now been bottled by Britain’s National Trust so that it can be given to stressed city workers, a media report said Friday.
The bottled air is from some of the country’s favourite spots and each glass jar should relieve stress for up to 10 minutes, Daily Express reported.

The air comes from different locations, including Townend on the shores of Lake Windermere in Cumbria, Stourhead in Wiltshire and Box Hill, Surrey.

The trust hit upon the fresh-air-in-bottle idea after a survey showed that 60 percent of people found a breath of fresh air helped reduce stress.

“What better way to escape the stresses of city life than with a breath of National Trust fresh air?

“With most of us living in an urban environment and having little time to escape to the great outdoors we thought it was about time the National Trust shared just a fraction of our copious amounts of fresh air with the nation,” National Trust spokesman Andrew McLaughlin was quoted as saying.

Founded in 1895, the National Trust’s main goal is to protect open spaces and preserve historic buildings and ruins. It’s first purchase was a 14th century Clergy House for 10 pounds. The trust has since received numerous donations and owns and cares for nearly 1,000 square miles of Britain.
