THE Miss Earth South Africa has brought our local earth warriors, Mireesha Narsai and Melissa Schreiber together in friendship and teamwork. These young women are both regional finalists in the Miss Earth SA programme and hope to make it to the finals in September.“I have known of Mireesha for a few years, but we never had the opportunity to share ideas and realise that we both love all things ‘green’,” says Schreiber. “We officially met at a beach clean-up in June and I knew this girl had a spark about her, just like me.”Narsai an avid plant-based food blogger, Schreiber an animal activist share their love for the environment making them the perfect team. The girls took part in a community “Love Day” on 18 June arranged by The Unlimited. The call was for anyone in the Highway area to spread the love to 330 children and transform five crèches. Narsai and Schreiber were allocated to Inhlakanipho Crèche in KwaNyuswa, Bothas Hill where volunteers fixed the playground, built a bicycle track, planted a vegetable patch and fruit-bearing trees, painted classrooms and fixed the bathroom.July sends them to Johannesburg where regional finalists will be participating in various greening projects. The girls sum up their Miss Earth SA journey: “We have had the pleasure of planting trees and teaching children about Mother Nature. Cleaned numerous beaches, roads and had a great time. We thank God for giving us hands, feet and a voice to teach people about His creation. We thank him for new friends, sunshine and rain. Thank you, Miss Earth, for this unforgettable opportunity to really make a difference.”The Miss Earth South Africa will be announced in September.
