China's pollution problems create business

Increased levels of pollution has triggered social media discontent, but has also inspired businesses.

    Strong winds mean people in Beijing can finally breathe a little easier. For days, much of the city has been covered in smog, twenty times higher than safe levels.

    Pollution in some parts of the country with the world's largest population and second biggest economy is not just visible, but also tangible.

    This has inspired a number of businesses to grow, as the government's lack of action frustrates many.
