A registered nurse, Miss Earth Canada 2017 Jacqueline Marsh is no stranger to the need to be active in preserving life. As a Miss Earth candidate, Marsh already has her advocacy on water consumption as top priority to focus on during her reign.

“I live next to the largest freshwater lake in the world so it’s an issue that’s close to my heart. We need to preserve this resource for the future generation,” added Marsh.

Her first steps? Educating people, starting from her community and eventually people outside her town and making them aware of the importance and ways of water consumption and conservation.

For Miss Earth Colombia 2017 Juliana Franco, reducing consumption and waste are essential in lessening people’s negative impact to nature. She envisions an emission-less (or free) world and to keep this advocacy rolling, she is set on spreading awareness and informing people to be mindful of whatever they buy and consume and the process it undergoes before it hits the market and leaves pollution and damage to the planet. Ultimately, her goal is to inspire people change their habits little by little so they can all contribute for a greener environment.

Reducing carbon footprint can easily be done at the comfort of your own home. Take it from Miss Earth England 2017 Charloce Brooke, a vegan and animal-lover, who strongly advocates reducing footprints by being conscious of what one eats.

For her, most of the food people eat, especially meat and dairy, undergoes processes that leave a heavy impact to the environment. She hopes to encourage more people to try a greener lifestyle and to empower everyone that no matter where they are, there will always be little and big ways to care for the surroundings.
