Beauty With A Purpose: Protecting The Environment

Miss World Cayman Islands founder Pamela Ebanks-Small, is proud to announce that Miss World Cayman Islands will be using their pageant as a platform to raise awareness for environmental issues and conservation in the Cayman Islands.  The heart of the international Miss World pageant is ‘Beauty with a Purpose.’  This is a major component for contestants, who are encouraged to bring attention to causes that are important to them.  The theme of the environment stems from the growing awareness of environmental issues our island faces, and the importance of educating both the youth and our local community of the invaluable natural resources our island is blessed with.  For instance, Cayman’s Blue Iguanas, our precious marine ecosystems and coral reefs.  Keeping with their focus on the environment, Miss World Cayman Islands is taking measures to make the night of the pageant a sustainable event as much as possible.  Join them on 8th September 2018, to see this come to life.  Behind the Scenes: Miss World Cayman Islands Wondering what to expect?

Sage Larock: Redefining Fashion Upcycling Plastic Into Swimwear

Behind all of the glitz and glamour of the fashion world is an ugly side.  There is an incredible amount of textile waste and pollution produced by the fashion industry.  “It is the second highest global polluter of clean water because of its use of toxic heavy metals, formaldehyde, and other toxic compounds” (Sage Larock).  In an era of conscious consumers, and a growing movement to pass on plastic consumers are evaluating their consumption habits.  Some are becoming more interested in how clothing is made.  As a result, they are seeking out sustainably and ethically made clothing.  Sustainable fashion is a game changer, it is redefining fashion and redesigning the way clothing is made.  In particular,  Sage Larock  is founded upon being a sustainable luxury line of swimwear and apparel made in Los Angeles, California.  The ethos of their sustainable clothing is making beautiful swimwear that is inspired by the sea and designed to be ocean friendly.  At the heart of their environmentally responsible approach is reclaiming ocean plastic debris and transforming it into fabric.  …
