Nidhi Kar – Edition- Most Powerful Women In Business

The world is currently facing some of the most pressing environmental challenges,
and Nidhi Kar, the executive director of Earthnest, is leading the charge to create a
sustainable future for our planet. Her unwavering passion for the environment,
coupled with her entrepreneurial spirit and innovative thinking, has enabled her to
make significant strides in the field of sustainability. Her achievements are a source
of inspiration for all those who aspire to make a difference in the world of
environmental conservation.

Early Years and Passion for the Environment

Nidhi Kar was born and raised in India, where she developed a deep love and
respect for nature. She spent most of her childhood outdoors, exploring the hills and
forests around her home. It was during these early years that she developed a keen
sense of the interconnectedness between humans and the environment.

Education and Early Career

After completing her undergraduate degree in Environmental Science, Nidhi Kar
began working with a variety of non-profit organizations in India, focusing on issues
such as water conservation, waste management, and sustainable agriculture. Her
work in these areas quickly gained recognition, and she was soon invited to speak at
international conferences and events.

Her work with Earthnest – ‘An answer to the plastic bags pollution’

Nidhi Kar’s work with Earthnest, a sustainable living company based in the United
Kingdom, has been particularly noteworthy. As the executive director, she has
spearheaded numerous innovative initiatives aimed at reducing the company’s
environmental footprint. Her inner drive to make a difference to society and the
environment has seen her develop innovative biobags to replace the ever pervasive
plastic bags that are the cause of so much pollution around the world. Her award-
winning Earthnest biobags are 100 per cent plastic-free, fully biodegradable,
compostable, and can be recycled with paper. Made of Cassava starch and other
natural additives, they are in fact stronger than plastic but unlike plastic they will
degrade in soil in a matter of months with no toxic residue and can be safely
consumed by insects, animals and marine life. Earthnest Bio Bags are certified as
Biodegradable by TÜV Rheinland (Germany) and UKAS (United Kingdom). 

Earthnest biobags are waterproof and oil-resistant. Importantly, they also provide an
oxygen barrier. These properties make them perfect for packaging food such as
meat and vegetables. And because biobags are stronger than conventional plastic
bags, they are also perfect for carrying shopping. Recycling is easy too. The biobags
can be dissolved in water at 80°C (which means, of course, that they won’t dissolve
in a rain shower) and can be recycled with paper as well.

In addition to her work on product development, Nidhi Kar has also been a vocal
advocate for sustainable living practices. She has authored numerous articles and

blog posts on the topic and has spoken at events around the world, inspiring
individuals and organizations to take action to protect the planet.

sustainability and has worked tirelessly to promote equitable and sustainable
practices. Through her work with various non-profit organizations, she has helped to
train and inspire the next generation of environmental leaders, equipping them with
the skills and knowledge they need to create a better future for all.

Nidhi Kar’s inspiring work has not gone unnoticed. She has been recognized with
numerous awards and accolades, including the prestigious “Sustainability Award” in
Product Innovation category at Southern Sustainability Expo (2021) in Southampton
in the United Kingdom. Her work has been featured in major publications and news
