Video: Devdhar Singh’s Special Swimming Pool That Serves Two Purposes

The swimming pool balances fun with environmental responsibility

In the little town of Pithoragarh, Uttarakhand lives Devdhar Singh. In 2000, he got a small piece of land under the fisheries department to build a pool.

What’s so special about this pool? For one, the pool is organic!

People flock here to relax on a daily basis and are charged a minimal fee to enter. Singh says that he built the pool simply for people to enjoy. However, that’s not all that the pool is doing. Being an organic swimming pool means it is eco-responsible.

Where does Singh get the resources to maintain this pool and How is it eco-responsible? Watch this video and find out.
