As some people may or may not know, I made the decision last month to compete in another pageant: Miss Earth New York. What I find very refreshing about this pageant system is that each of the contestants platform has to do with helping the environment in some shape or form. Their mission is to provide a voice for Mother Earth through advocacy and education.
Environmental Education and Leadership: Empowering young people to take leadership in their own communities and become environmental stewards by taking action and starting projects such as community gardens or recycling events. I will do this by educating and raising awareness to issues that interest and motivate young people to go outside, interact and become one with Mother Earth.
A few weeks ago I came across this incredibly visual image on Pinterest that I wanted to share with my readership. If you work in an office (which many of us do), you might not even know about some of these simple ways you can help your office “GO GREEN”! I honestly did not realize how valuable plants were. For every three individuals in your office there should be one plant! Plants reduce dust, bacteria, mold and even improve the quality of the air you breathe. Plus they increase productivity in the office and improve your mood!
