Watch: This Woman Can Build You a Low-Cost, Safe and Unique Mud Home!

For any sort of construction, the common materials used are bricks, sand, and cement. But, these materials aren’t sustainable and do not decompose. In 2015, 37-year-old Shagun Singh wanted to change these practices and make a difference.
