Innovation Description :
Having read that reusing plastic water bottles may cause cancer, Anushka thought about making her own eco-friendly water bottle. In her bottle, she has used two layers of coir with sphagnum moss in between and with khuss inner lining. A mixture of urad daal, jaggery and vinegar has been used as binder. Coir makes the bottle water resistant, the moss layer acts as an insulator, and khuss layer keeps the water fresh for a long period of time.
She likes playing badminton, instrumental music and table tennis. She has a keen interest in particle and quantum physics and wants to become an astrophysicist when she grows up. The quote that motivates her is, “To achieve something you have to dream first”.
