In Celebration of World Environment Day Miss Earth Regional Semi-Finalists in the Gauteng Region were invited to join Miss Earth South Africa and their partners: City of Joburg, PIkitUp, TsogoSun and the High Commissioner of Canada to South Africa. Waste Stops With Me is the theme for this year. We went to Mshenguville Park in Soweto on the 5th of June 2017 to clean up the area and to engage with the community on the matter of waste and how people can connect to the environment.
On the day we learned a lot and one of the speakers who touched my heart spoke about the importance of intentionally asking ourselves some honest and harsh questions about before the egg is on your plate what process did it undergo. We were reminded of how important it is to appreciate the little things we already have that play a huge part in our lives. When we clean the place we are in we reveal the beauty of the place.
