A few months back, pictures of ‘bamboo bottles’ made by artisans from Tripura went viral online and it became a huge hit. The initiative worked towards making tribals more economically independent and moving towards a more self-reliant and eco-friendly future.

It was also clarified that bamboo is one of the fastest-growing plants in the world. Hence, cutting bamboo is way more eco-friendly than cutting down trees for wood which takes several years to grow.
