The national finalists and their supporters collectively raised over 22,500 tree planting pledges by the
time of the national finals, which took place in Coventry on 27th August at the Heart of England Conference Centre .
This means that over 1,282.5 tCO2 will now be sequestered from our atmosphere, helping to cool our planet from rising global temperatures.
The Miss England winner Rehema Muthamia who graduated in Genetrics during the pandemic
and Mr England winner Liam Royce Ulla who has his own chauffuer business New Century cars stole the judges hearts and with that the national titles .
The Miss England finalist of the year 2020 award winner Alina Green won a two awards at the Miss England National final ,
the Miss Charity and the Climate Queen Award for raising over 10k for charity and collecting 4,000 tree planting pledges.
It was a huge achievement from Miss & Mr Dorset this year,
as Mr Dorset Liam Ulla also won the Climate King Award for collecting over 1,000 tree pledges.
The business winner was Plastfree, who also sponsored the Eco Awards the final this year.
Kelly Levell founder of We Do Ethical said “It’s been an honour to discover and work with the young changemakers and businesses through our Climate Award. I introduced the award this year to not only educate our minds of tomorrow, but also to take measurable positive action towards saving our planet. Nationally through the support we have gained from the Miss & Mr England team, their contestants, sponsors, family and friends, we have achieved our goal! Thank you all for being the change we need to see in our world.”
Rehema & Liam will be encouraged to continue the support for the We Do Ethical Trees to save the planet project which will offset 57kg of CO2 per tree planted.
The 70,000 trees goal will sequester 3,990 tCO2 in total from our atmosphere.
The trees planted provide local forest families in Africa with food security and an income, by trading the excess produce they grow.
The trees also create homes for native wildlife and increase biodiversity on each 1 acre plot which is maintained by each forest family.
