On Saturday in the Philippines, a new Miss Earth was crowned during what was quite the elaborate ceremony. So, who’s the proud holder of the title this year, you ask? From the Czech Republic, it’s Tereza Fajksova.
The Miss Earth Pageant is a lot like other more famous beauty pageants, except with an emphasis on protecting the environment. Tereza’s specialty in that arena is as a strong proponent of recycling. Here’s an excerpt from her pre-pageant interview:
“If it’s too hard to do, then people just won’t do it, so my environmental advocacy is recycling. Recycling is easy and something everyone can do. Some countries have recycling bins for each house which is making it easy for people at home to recycle.”
Now there’s a position I think we can all get behind.
As for Tereza Fajksova’s other incredible qualities (besides her love for our planet), you can check them out via the gallery above.
