Plant Life in Nepali Culture
My study revealed that I could use two main types of filtration in the river itself: plants and sand filtration. Plants have a special place in Nepali culture. They are used in daily offerings to the gods and as a part of religious rituals. Eco-friendly plants, particularly those that use little water or serve as water-purifying filters could be planted in wetlands adjacent to the river banks in order to filter the water, while at the same time removing bacteria and pollution. The challenge was to make such progressive steps culturally desirable so that they become integrated into daily activities.
