IN true Upper Highway spirit, volunteers braved the cold to support Miss Earth South Africa finalist Mireesha Narsai in her clean up of the Kloof railway tracks over the weekend.

Watercrest Mall co-hosted the event, sponsoring refreshments and goodie bags, which also included Trocomare herbal salt from SA Natural Products. The Keep Kloof Beautiful association was also in attendance.

Lucky draw prizes of a R300 voucher from The Morning Trade Market and a five-class pack from Tree Natural Yoga Studio were awarded to two volunteers.

Ten bags of trash were collected, including many glass bottles and plastic packaging. The clean-up was Narsai's part of the #WasteStopsWith ME campaign that the Miss Earth South Africa programme has chosen as its theme for 2016.

Miss Earth South Africa is a leadership programme which empowers women to make a sustainable difference.
She has been involved in tree plantings, vegetable garden plantings, recycling campaigns, clean ups and food collections during her journey as a Miss Earth finalist. The gala event takes place on 8 September at the Palazzo Hotel at Montecasino, where a winner will be chosen.
