Miss Earth 2014: Miss Myanmar Ei Mon Khine
What is your environmental advocacy and why did you choose this?
I would like to advocate about environmental awareness, tree planting programs, and activities. For one, trees clean the air. They absorb odors and pollutant gases (nitrogen oxide, ammonia, sulfur-dioxide, and ozone) and generate oxygen essential for our breathing.
Trees also save energy. For instance, houses shaded by trees save 10-30% in air-conditioning costs versus those without it. And lastly, trees can recycle water and control soil erosion. Therefore, trees are very important to our mother earth.
What tip can you share to promote this year's theme, Eco Tourism?
We must welcome a new travel ethic that appreciates and enjoys nature, while conserving its natural and cultural heritage and improving people’s well-being.
