A childhood in the impoverished and degraded landscape of the rural Eastern Cape has given Ashanti Mbanga, Miss Earth South Africa, a passion for working to protect and repair the environment for the benefit of ordinary people. She’ll be taking that passion to the Philippines in December, where she will join 115 other young women for the international leg of the competition.
Miss Earth South Africa executive director Catherine Constantinides and Generation Earth founder Ella Bella recently led a Skype call with former US vice president and environment advocate Al Gore to raise awareness of how climate change and carbon emissions may affect Africans.
In honour of National Environment Week and World Environment Day, the Miss Earth South Africa will be visiting Melville Koppies West Nature Reserve for their annual clean up project on Saturday, 1 June, and are calling on members of the public to join in.
