Skip The Plastic! Assam Man Creates Eco-Friendly, Leak-Proof Water Bottles Out Of Bamboo
I do not know about you, but seeing the consequences of climate change unfold right in front on my eyes has filled me with horror.
At school we used to study that it will be our next generation who will be impacted severely by global warming, but humans have screwed up so bad that our own generation is witnessing the nightmare unfold.
Be it the water crisis in Chennai or the heat wave that has struck the entire continent of Europe, climate change is now a monster of a problem that can no longer be ignored.
But there are people out there who are trying to make a difference even if it is in their small immediate environment. We told you sometime ago how the IFS in Andaman switched to bamboo pots instead of plastic for saplings. This is because not only is bamboo natural, it can be reused and disposed, unlike plastic.
In a lot of places bamboo products are replacing plastic. And given the benefits of bamboo that far exceed those of plastic, an eco-friendly water bottle has been developed by former IITian from Assam, Dhritiman Bora. These bottles come in different sizes and the cost varies between Rs 400 and Rs 600.
The bottle is made of completely natural products and it is sealed using a cork which makes it leak proof, so there is no tension there.
North East Today reported, “Being a natural product, the water remains cool and hygienic and being sturdy it can be taken anywhere. The plastic bottles are very bad for health and in summer can not be used it become hot.”
But Dhritiman is not alone in this. He was helped by Mousom Bora. Both of them are working together to make these eco-friendly bamboo bottled more accessible to people via an e-commerce platform called www.tribalplantes.com. Locals are still not aware of the day-to-day alternative to plastic, and so one of the major obstacles that they are facing is spreading awareness.
“I am trying to redefine the natural and raw choice of people through tribalplanets.com. We are trying to make all the products easily available at your doorstep with little amount of digitisation," North East Today quotes Mousom as saying.
While we are freaking out about the climate change there are people out there actually doing something. You can visit the website and check the cool bottles out.
