Having read that reusing plastic water bottles may cause cancer, Anushka thought about making her own ecofriendly 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.
