In Taiwan they invented a drink to draw attention to pollution

Air pollution is reaching higher and higher levels in some of the world's major cities. Measures have been put in place to try to stop this problem, but there is still a long way to go, especially to raise awareness about this among people.

Because of this, Ron Chiang, owner of a coffee shop in Taipei, Taiwan, invented a game to draw attention to the high levels of pollution that affect this city. The drink, called "Smog Juice" is composed of chia seeds, honey, water, lemon juice and hazelnut syrup. It is also served in a glass shaped like the symbolic Taipei 101 building.

When stirred, the chia seeds fall off and appear to be pollution particles. The idea is to create awareness about the risks to which those who live in the capital of Taiwan are exposed, a city that daily must live with a dense cloud of pollution.

This product was already launched in December 2016 and has a value of 130 Taiwanese dollars, which is equivalent to four United States dollars.
