Youths advised to conserve and preserve the environment

Miss Earth Sabah 2012
Sabahan younger generation has been urged to participate the efforts in conserving and preserving the environment.

Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Datuk Masidi Manjun said it was vital as the objective now was not just on environment awareness alone but a collective action from all levels of the community. Previously, he has complimented the organising committee of Miss Earth Sabah, including Mandy Nandu, for organising various environmental green activities throughout the pageant week. He is strongly supported such activities, especially the 'No Plastic Bag Challenge'. The green efforts would definitely spur initiative and creativity to a higher level to save our planet and us, he added. Meanwhile, MNE Production director Mandy Nandu said Miss Earth Sabah 2012 aimed to educate the young girls in Sabah to help create awareness for themselves, their families and the community to be more serious in saving and protecting the environment. She claimed that the drive to stop the unnecessary use of plastics among the public was very challenging however she hoped what the finalists did can be an initial point for a plastic-free lifestyle. Miss Earth Sabah 2012 participants are not only required to attend various environmental activities but are also given the opportunity to practise and voice out their green thoughts and ideas, showcasing and promoting various tourist destinations in Sabah.
