Bellam Vijay Kumar Reddy, Chairman, Nature Care Innovation Services Pvt. Ltd. (NCIS), started out with a vision to deliver world-class environment friendly products not only in India but also in the USA and Canada. Sensitive towards the rising concern of plastic pollution. NCIS works towards making our planet safer and greener for future civilizations with key focus of sustainable production and environmental consciousness.
Mr. Reddy was born and brought up in Hyderabad in a humble family majorly engaged in agriculture and that’s where he primarily inoculated his sense of belonging to nature. His keen interest in biology led him to pursue graduation in biosciences. After working as a biology lecturer in esteemed institutions, his attention was drawn towards overreliance on plastic and its damaging effect on the environment. This compelled him to start an NGO, Nature Protection Social Service, which worked towards generating awareness about plastic pollution and taking measures to reduce it.
His journey with the NGO brought many eco-friendly products to his knowledge and he found the opportunity to market the products at a large scale, which eventually gave birth to NCIS.
Dealing in 150+ ecofriendly and biodegradable products, the biodegradable covers are just one of them, which promise to reduce plastic pollution the most. Their motto is to build a sustainable environment by providing solutions in the form of unique products available at affordable prices. Presently working for educational institutions with revolutionary products like paper pencils, rewritable notebooks and seed notebooks, they are also targeting grocery, cosmetics, meat packing units, pharmacy outlets, and other wholesale and retail markets for providing biodegradable and compostable carry bags.
They are determined to create awareness about the ill-effects of single-use plastic and how it is contributing to the climate change. The war against dependence on plastic in day-to-day life was started with the establishment of NCIS in January 2019. Soon after the company spread its wings in 15 States with 16 company owned outlets and over 100+ franchise outlets across Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu.
Their franchise models have been designed to help products reach across the length and breadth of the country. A franchise is given to a person who is passionate about preserving the environment along with competence to run and maintain the model successfully, however, assistance is provided for the franchise office set-up and trained sales and marketing staff. NCIS is directly as well as indirectly providing employment to 500 people.
