Dr Nisha will be embarking on efforts to maintain the ecosystem by reducing waste such as plastics, embarking on planting more trees, and coming up with her own brand of biodegradable sanitary pads as her advocacy. “As Miss Earth Malaysia 2020/21, I would like to be more of an advocate of environmental issues, the harmful aspects of human activity on the biophysical environment maintaining the ecosystem. Nature is a richness of colours, forms and elements, and must co-exist by maintaining a balance”, she said after she was crowned.

Dr. Nisha will also lead an initiative to donate biodegradable sanitary pads to the underprivileged and the indigenous community so that they practice good self-hygiene through the ‘purchase one, donate one’ campaign.
