Miss Earth Wales speaks out about being Green
Recycling your wine bottles has suddenly got sexier – thanks to the newly-crowned Miss Earth Wales.
CLAIRE REES found out how 22-year-old former Miss Wales runner-up Jamie-Lee Williams is aiming to change the nation’s eco-habits – with the beauty queen’s step-by-step guide to being easy on the eye – and the environment
JAMIE-LEE WILLIAMS isn’t just red hot – she’s also as green as they come.
The 22-year-old teaching assistant has just been crowned Miss Earth Wales and is making it her mission to clean up in style at the international final.
Stunning Jamie-Lee, who has a psychology degree and is working with autistic children at a primary school in London as part of her teacher training, won the Wales heat of Miss Earth UK after convincing a panel of judges that not only is she easy on the eye – she’s even easier on the environment.
Because while many beauty pageants delve no deeper than the contestant’s smile, winners of Miss Earth have to prove they know just as much about making a difference as they do about making an entrance.
