Environmentalist in Jammu creates vertical gardens using plastic bottles, helps in reducing pollution

Jammu: Environmentalist Dr. Nazia Rasool Latifi is trying to combat environmental pollution by creating vertical gardens in Jammu using plastic bottles.

“Vertical garden not just reduces environmental pollution but also benefits the nature in many ways. The method helps to conserve water as the plants are vertically arranged to ensure minimum wastage of water,” Latifi told ANI.

The environmentalist said the garden not only helps in reducing stress levels and add to the local beauty.

“I had attended a seminar following which I got this idea. I love nature and had the passion to do something so I started with this. I made the vertical garden at Government College for Women in Gandhi Nagar were I was teaching. I have also made a vertical garden at Police Public School, the University of Jammu following which many organisations are approaching me,” she told ANI.

“Drip irrigation is used in the process so that less amount of water is used. Amid COVID-19, when stress is on a healthy environment, I feel that the vertical gardens are a good concept. I also demonstrate the concept to students so that they learn the concept and it can also become a source of income for them,” she added.
