Deepti Sharma and Abhishek Sharma also plan to build a rainwater harvesting system that will be channelled to a storage tank with a capacity of 10,000 litres.

For decades, plastic has been a part of everyday - life from toothbrushes and waterbottles to packaging. According to Time magazine, microplastics are possibly found in our food as well.

Since the 1950s, we have produced more than 8.5 billion tonnes of plastic. Presently, around 60 percent of the plastic ends up in landfills. To tackle the issue of the plastic waste and recycle it, this couple from Hartola village of Nainital district, Uttarkhand, has built an entire four-room homestay, out of plastic bottles.

The homestay built by Deepti Sharma and her husband Abhishek Sharma has been made from 26,000 bottles. These bottles were made into patches and later joined to make into a complete wall, later around 100 plastic bottles were tied together and covered with mesh wire, to make the wall rigid. The plastic bottle wall also prevents the temperature from dropping besides being sustainable.

According to The Logical Indian, the couple used old tyres for the flooring and to beautify the home, lamps were made from whiskey bottles. The home built by the couple is quite spacious as it can accommodate eight people, as each room is 10 feet by 11 feet in size.

Deepti, a schoolteacher in Meerut, Uttar Pradesh, has built the house with her husband to encourage people to avoid using plastic.

The homestay is now ready, and after the registry and completion of the project, the couple plan to sensitise people on how plastic can be used to build houses, small shops, and even toilets.
