Telangana sets the new trend to recycle plastic products effectively. It has come up with a concept of 'Recycle India'. In this process, Bamboo House India constructed eco-friendly bus stop.
Yes, sounds weird right?
But it’s true. If you go to Swaroopnagar colony in Hyderabad, you will see a recycled bus stop which is made entirely with recycled plastic bottles and it’s sheltered with green bamboo shoots.
The entire project costs only Rs. 15,000, with each recycled bottle costing Rs. 1.40. It is made of 1,000 recycled plastic bottles, bought from a scrap dealer. The bus stop was built by a 20-member team in just 2-3 days and the shelter is 8-foot-high with a metal frame.
Prashant Lingam, founder of Bamboo House India said that a proper bus stop costs between 2 and 3 lakh.
"We have received positive feedback from the community about the bus stop. People actually use it too," says Mr Lingam, who himself goes to check on this unique bus stop almost every day.
It’s really a great initiative. If every state government starts using recycled plastic products in the best way that benefits people, we can reduce global warming to the maximum extent.
By recycling half of the household waste, you can save tons of CO2 every year from being released into atmosphere. Reduce waste by buying reusable products.
Reuse, Reduce and Recycle.
