Miss Earth USA pageant delegates participate in national service day sponsored by Garbo Grabber

Delegates dedicated time to cleaning up a Las Vegas park and beyond

Las Vegas, NV, USA - September 11, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —


Las Vegas, Nevada (June 27, 2019) Miss Earth USA delegates are committed to using their collective voices and public platform to advocate for environmental responsibility, proudly serving as role models for the preservation and restoration of the planet. The annual Miss Earth USA pageant, with the precursor to Miss Earth set to take place this fall -- focuses on empowering women, promoting eco-tourism and aiding environmental causes around the globe. On June 30, Emanii Davis, Miss Georgia Earth, was crowned Miss Earth USA 2019 at the South Point Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

In addition to interviews, posing for photos and a poolside swimsuit showcase, the multi-day pageant event included a service day where delegates dedicated time to cleaning-up Flores Park in Las Vegas. Garbo Grabber, a proud partner and sponsor of Miss Earth USA and the national service day, supplied each delegate with their Trash Baggers and reachers to make the job easier and more enjoyable.

“Garbo Grabber has become my “must have clean-up tool,” said Lili Klainer, Miss Mid-Atlantic. “Not only does it make each clean-up quicker and more efficient, but it is also so convenient and easy to use that I always have it with me in my car for unexpected or impromptu clean-up opportunities. I am so grateful for the support and partnership from the folks at Garbo Grabber, who constantly inspire me to keep up the mission."

At Flores Park, the Miss Earth USA ladies removed trash that would have otherwise become harmful to wildlife and humans, and restored an outdoor livable space in North Las Vegas beloved for its open fields and tree-lined walking paths. The delegates’ hands-on educational approach stretches beyond Flores Park and the pageant world though, as they raise environmental awareness back in their home states and local communities. Equipped with Garbo Grabber products, the delegates and the Miss Earth USA organization at-large are hosting clean-up days and service projects in towns across the United States and around the globe.

"Partnering with Garbo Grabber is one of the best decisions we've made as an organization,” said Ariel Sorensen, Assistant National Director for Miss Earth USA. “Over the last two years, we have expanded our clean-up activities to an international level due to the increase in productivity and efficiency while using the Trash Bagger. It's a product everyone can benefit from.”

Under the Vegas sun, the Miss Earth USA ladies worked to clean up trash like bottles, cans and cigarette butts. As they worked, they spent time connecting and getting to know each other, sharing their stories and goals among the group. Their tasks were made simpler thanks to Garbo Grabber products, which allowed for efficient, easy clean-up and smiles all around.

“These ladies are networking and raising awareness regarding the local impact of a global issue,” said Ashley Lionetti, owner of Garbo Grabber. “Our products have assisted them well in Las Vegas and beyond. It reinforces the idea that happy volunteers will return. More volunteers means more clean-ups, which means healthier communities, less trash in our water systems and a more sustainable future for the Earth.”

UN: Reconstruction of landmark Mosul mosque to begin in 2020

PARIS — The United Nations' cultural agency says reconstruction of Al-Nouri Mosque in Iraq's old city of Mosul is scheduled to start at the beginning of next year.

Sep 22, 2019

MEXICO CITY — Mexicans left candles and flowers at impromptu offerings Friday for expressionist painter Francisco Toledo a day after his death at age 79, remembering an artist respected for his fights to preserve historic sites and green spaces. In a country where politicians talk endlessly about defending culture and identity, Toledo actually did it. He gained a reputation for never yielding to power, money or influence, and became perhaps the most revered figure of Mexico's present-day art world. His paintings were a celebration of the mystical world, the animal spirits and color of the indigenous cultures in his native...
