What comes to mind when you think of tissue? I know it is kind of a weird question, but humor me for a bit. Ideally, we use tissues to keep ourselves clean, be it a facial tissue or a hand wipe. But what if I tell you that a company is selling used tissues to its customers. Sounds gross and unhygienic right? Well, not to the company selling the product and its customers. Not only is the company not finding it gross, but they are also actually modeling it to be a substitute for medicines.
No kidding, all of this is an absolute reality. And if this was not enough the price tag on the used tissues will blow your mind even further. Wondering why is the company doing so? And why would anyone buy this product? The answers lay ahead.
So the product comes from a company by the name ‘Vaev’. The company which has its home base in Copenhagen, Denmark came up with the product back in 2017. It is currently in the process of setting up shop in Los Angeles. But why used tissues?
Well, ‘Vaev’ claims that these tissues can actually make our immune systems stronger. They believe that a tissue which carries human sneeze is better for treating cold than any pills or medicines.
Here is Vaev’s story behind the used tissues:
Are you wondering about the price of these used tissues? Take a deep breath, you are going to need it. The ‘Vaev’ tissue sells out for a whopping $80 (about 5000 INR).
Yes, this fancy little box packing of the tissue retails for 80 dollars. So, to say that this is shocking, bizarre and irrational, will be the understatement of the year. And seems like netizens agree, as many of them are slamming Vaev for its product. This is what some of the comments went like:
Trying this will only make one sick
Whoever invented this is sick!
Hope they are prosecuted for making biohazardous waste
Or you can just not wash your hands, ever
It is like packing diarrhea in a fancy box and selling it for indigestion prevention
This is weird thinking
