Poor waste management is one of the chief problems in India which in turn leads to hazardous environmental problems. However, there is one man who has been going above and beyond to address the issue. Hailing from a family that specialises in paper production, Kaushal Shah realised the need of an innovative yet sustainable and more efficient way to produce paper, at an early age. Based on his idea of using agricultural wastes for paper production instead of cutting down trees, he launched envoPAP, a certified B Corporation in 2015. So far, the company has made a revenue of around £8 million.
