Plastfree Revolution with the national beauty pageant
Today’s youth are more aware than ever before and what better opportunity than the covetted Miss England pageant to talk about sustainable fashion and hygiene!
We are thrilled to be co-sponsoring the Miss England event this year and the Eco Round. #plastfreeecoqueen has been a journey to highlight negativities of fast fashion & the importance of living consciously by re using materials, choosing biodegradable products, saying no to plastic whilst designing an outfit and making it wearable!
All the contestants have shown not only awareness of the environmental problems but also the skills necessary to sow, cut & conceptualise an eco-friendly dress with passion & perseverence.
It is an honour to be co- judging the Eco Round with Angie Beasley, Director of Miss England contest and 2014 Miss Eco winner!
Miss Eco Queen entries
We are so excited to be sponsoring & judging this year’s Miss Plastfree Eco Queen at Miss England Finals on 27 August 2021.
It has been a fantastic journey to see the contestants design their eco dresses from scratch! Using sustainable, plastic free materials, recycling old clothes, reusing upcycled products & supporting charities. It has truly been a celebration of talent!
In 2007, the Miss England National Director, Angie Beasley invented the Miss England ECO Round as not everyone can afford to buy expensive / designer clothes to compete in the contest . In this ethical round , contestants are invited to get creative and think about recycling . The national finalists are invited to source an outfit made from recycled materials/ clothing & make the outfit look stylish on the catwalk. Often the girls purchase clothing from charity shops or gather recycled materials to create some amazing colourful creations!
