The Plastfree Eco Queen Award was presented at the recent Miss England Grand final at the Heart of England Conference & Events Centre in Coventry .
Poppy Gerrard , the reigning Miss Liverpool City Region won the award with her incredible dress made from Chocolate box lids and sweet wrappers to highlight plastic waste .
“My Eco dress has been created in collaboration with the wonderful @doesliverpool @jackiesees @kassimaker
It was great to teach a Primary School Year 4 class who helped me with the sewing of my dress whilst learning about our planet and the Maths behind the dress design.
My dress has a geometric Maths theme (due to my love for the subject), and is completely made out of recycled plastic CHOCOLATE BOXES collected from the festive season and laser cut into shapes @qualitystreetuki @cadburyuk
The wings, which light up and have a Heroes Chocolate box edging, symbolise what we are trying to protect by living environmentally friendly – NATURE
Poppy will be showing off her winning outfit on the Plastfree Stand at the next Pharmacy show at the NEC on October 17th –
