When three, dynamic, and intellectual women endeavour to pursue a venture together, it is most certainly guaranteed to be a great initiative. The exceptional trio, Ndihone Ndzinisa, Sizani Ngobeni and Thando Soko joined forces to launch Mrs South Africa Green in March this year.
This is not just a pageant, but it is a movement fuelled by a passion to help promote and increase awareness of a healthy, sustainable and enviro-conscious society. It is a pretty phenomenal pageant and leadership programme for married women between the ages of 21 and 50 who are driven and passionate about their communities with an outstanding knowledge of environmental issues.
Mrs South Africa Green seeks to connect with women who are wives, in some cases mothers, entrepreneurs and dedicated social change makers who are authentic and relatable. The brand is about beauty with a purpose and geared up to becoming the country’s leading pageant and a revered female empowerment program for ‘green’ conscious married women in South Africa.
“Our mission is to promote the importance of saving our planet environmentally. In addition to helping protect the environment, we are going to use the pageant as a platform to showcase the ecotourism aspects of our beautiful country by way of sensitizing the rest of South African citizens and international visitors alike about the importance of sustainable travel, says Ndihone.
In line with its ‘Pretty Down to Earth and Pretty Green’ tag line, the Mrs South Africa Green aims to become a one-stop ‘green-eco’ living advocacy platform for sustainable living – from green living to conserving water and energy as well as protecting wildlife and saving plastic pollution.
“The first woman who will be crowned Mrs South Africa Green, will be a person that truly understands that human nature impacts Mother Nature, which is why she will lead the way to responsible living, promoting sustainable developments,” says Sizani.
“We believe that feminism is not about making women strong or empowered. Women are already empowered, strong and are natural leaders in their personal, family, professional, business and community lives,” she adds.
“We aim to crown a global role model to represent the honest values of South Africa, whilst promoting Mother Earth. We also aim to promote awareness around household waste management and community waste reduction,” concludes Thando.
