Uttrakhand: Uttar Pradesh Couple builds homestay using plastic bottles

In Uttrakhand's Nainital district, a couple from Uttar Pradesh has built a four-room homestay by using around 26,000 plastic bottles in Hartola village. As per media reports, Deepti Sharma built the house along with her husband. Deepti expressed, "We travel a lot to the mountains and every time we go to a place, we are just disappointed to see the amount of plastic waste that is generated in the mountains without any scope of recycling or proper disposal. That is when it struck us that we wanted to do something using plastic that is generated in the mountains. We believe that either people should recycle plastic in the mountains or take back the plastic waste generated by them, but not harm the mountains with all the waste". She further added that plastic helps in providing protection from cold, which can be helpful in such a place. Do you think that everyone should recycle plastic and use it to save the environment?

In Uttrakhand's Rudraprayag district, Prabha Devi Semwal, a 76-year-old woman has protected the ecosystem of her village by planting more than 500 trees over decades which is now a dense forest and a home to rare fruit trees, alpine flowers, and evergreen conifers. Prabha Devi, in an interview, stated, "They would cut down tree after tree for houses, offices or other projects. Nobody cared to plant a single tree. The soil was eroding and lands were turning sterile. I realised if I don't step up and save my land, it was in great peril. I just kept on planting, wherever I found a little barren land." As per media reports, Prabha Devi has even raised a small shrine next to her house, surrounded by rose shrubs. “This is my father-in-law’s house and land. If I don’t save these lands then who will?”, she added. Do you think that everybody should contribute to save the ecosystem by planting more trees? Comment below. Src: https://bit.ly/2oO5Me
