‘it’s not from a car park, hon­est’

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

The jars of Swiss air come in three sizes – £200 for a jer­oboam (three litres), £135 for a mag­num (one litre) and £78 for a pint.

A quar­ter of any fu­ture prof­its from Mr Green’s busi­ness will go to the World­vi­sion Clean Wa­ter Ini­tia­tive in Africa and he has al­ready do­nated £800 of his own money to the char­ity.

Mr Green, pic­tured, said: “I ac­tu­ally go 3,000m up to fetch it. I don’t go into a car park to get it, hon­est. I have lived here for 20 years and the Swiss don’t know what they’ve got. The air really is some­thing spe­cial.

“When I go up the moun­tains I really do feel bet­ter, I am not imag­in­ing it. I se­ri­ously feel al­most re­born.

“There’s a quick ‘pf­sst’ and you can take a breath of gen­uine moun­tain air from Switzer­land.

“But you don’t have to open it. You can just keep it as a col­lec­tor’s item or to re­mind you of the good life and open at a later date or cel­e­bra­tion.”
