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

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

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.”

Sep 19, 2019

MOUNT ARAFAT, Saudi Arabia — More than 2 million Muslims are gathered at the sacred hill of Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia for an intense day of worship and reflection on what's considered the climax of the Islamic hajj pilgrimage. Some had tears streaming down their faces as the men, wearing simple white garments, and women raised their hands in worship on the slopes of the rocky hill. Many walked through the pre-dawn darkness early Saturday to the hill where the Prophet Muhammad delivered his final sermon some 1,400 years ago, calling for equality and unity among Muslims.

Saudi changes allow women to travel without male consent

Sep 19, 2019

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi Arabia published new laws early Friday that loosen restrictions on women by allowing any citizen to apply for a passport and travel freely, ending a long-standing guardianship policy that gave men control over women. The changes are a potential game-changer for Saudi women's rights in the kingdom. The legal system has long been criticized because it treated women as minors throughout their adult lives, requiring they have a man's consent to obtain a passport or travel abroad. Often a woman's male guardian is her father or husband, and in some cases a woman's own...

Egypt demands Christie's halt auction of King Tut statue

Sep 19, 2019

CAIRO — Egypt has tried to halt the auction of a 3,000-year-old stone sculpture of the famed boy pharaoh Tutankhamun at Christie's in London, while the auction house said its sale was legal. The statue — a brown quartzite head depicting King Tut — is scheduled to be auctioned off in July, and could generate more than $5 million, according to Christie's. The artifact features King Tut's full mouth with slightly drooping lower lips and almond-shaped eyes. For many, King Tut is the ultimate symbol of ancient Egypt's glory. Howard Carter discovered the pharaoh's nearly intact tomb in 1922 in...

Turkey's Erdogan witness in footballer Mesut Ozil's wedding

Sep 19, 2019

ISTANBUL — Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was in the wedding party as Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil tied the knot on Friday. State-run Anadolu news agency said Erdogan and his wife, Emine, were legal witnesses for Ozil, who married model, actress and former Miss Turkey Amine Gulse in Istanbul.
