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.”

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Feb 21, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Feb 21, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

NEW YORK — Declassified U.S. government documents and artifacts will be part of a new exhibit about the decade-long search for Osama bin Laden at the site of the New York terrorist attack he masterminded.
