Miss Earth Sabah gives green talk

KOTA KINABALU: Miss Earth Sabah 2011 Olivia Vun Kai Li made a special appearance during the Sabah Pharmaceutical Society Health Expo in Suria Mall Sabah on Sunday.
The reigning queen gave her green talk on the impact of environment to one’s health. In her talk, Olivia reminded the crowd to always be mindful of the amount of rubbish they produce and she emphasized that doing things out of convenience will save a lot of trouble but it will definitely harm the environment and subsequently is detrimental to health.
She conducted a question and answer session with the crowd after the green talk session and the response from the crowd was very good.
In conjunction with Earth Hour 2012, Miss Earth Sabah will be involved in a few events. On March 30, prior to the Earth Hour, Miss Earth Sabah will be conducting the Earth Hour programme at SM St Michael Penampang. This programme is a collaboration between MNE Productions, the main organiser of Miss Earth Sabah 2012 and sponsored by Gardenia Sabah.
During that program, Olivia will be giving out her talk to the students of SM St Michael in Penampang and the Miss Earth Sabah team will conduct fun environmental activities with students such as Earth Hour Quizzes Session, Collecting Old Newspaper Inter-Class Competition, Environmental Essay Competition and Eco Recycle Costume Competition.
These competitions have been going on since Monday and the official event and prize giving ceremony will be held on March 30. This is an effort to help the youngsters to understand the real meaning of ‘Earth Hour’ and what they can contribute to help the earth by practicing green initiatives in their daily lives.
On March 31, Miss Earth Sabah will be taking part in the Earth Hour event which is a joint effort of Sutera Harbour Resort, Dewan Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu (DBKK), Sabah Environmental Action Centre (EAC) and World Wildlife Fund (WWF).
Again, the brainy beauty reigning queen will be sharing her thoughts and pledge to go ‘beyond the hour’ at Tanjung Aru first beach.
All these involvements show a continuous effort and commitment by Miss Earth Sabah towards promoting environmental awareness, instil ecological knowledge, attitudes, values, commitments for actions, and ethical responsibilities for protecting and caring for the environment.
Miss Earth Sabah encourages all fellow Sabahans to support and be part of Earth Hour by switching off non essential lights on March 31 from 8.30pm to 9.30pm. A small effort could make a big difference.
Miss Earth Sabah 2012 is tentatively scheduled to kick start in April where the regional auditions will be held in Tawau (April 7- 8), Sandakan (April 14-15), Keningau (April 11–12) and Kota Kinabalu (April 27–29) in the quest to find the next green ambassador.

Earth Hour mempunyai satu aktiviti yang bagus kerana boleh menyebarkan kesedaran kepada orang ramai di seluruh dunia untuk mengurangkan penggunaan elektrik jika tidak diperlukan.

Through Miss Earth events, people are more aware and started to bring their own green bag.

Miss Earth is not only based on good looking but most important she could carry the responsibilities as an 'earth ambassador' to bring more awareness on taking care of our environment to the public.
