State winners of Miss India 2019 join hands with Afroz Shah for beach cleaning activity

The prestigious title of Femina Miss India 2019 comes with commitment and vows to continue its tradition supporting and encouraging the new generation women who have the potential to lead and represent the country in the future. With such titles, there also comes responsibility towards society, and keeping the same in mind, Femina Miss India 2019 joined hands with environmentalist Afroz Shah along with Dia Mirza and Prathamesh Maulingkar in the beach cleaning activity with Afroz shah.

Thirty state winners came together to collect the highest amount of non-degradable waste as per a part of their contribution at the Danapani beach. 

Commenting on the same, Afroz Shah said, “Our love for mother nature must be expressed manifestly - by taking ground action regularly. Miss India is a fertile grooming ground for young leaders. A young leader from Miss India rolling up the sleeves and expressing the love by cleaning sends a message to the world - that we are truly a beauty with a purpose. My extended gratitude to each one of them."

Actress Dia Mirza added, "I have always believed that beauty is defined by our actions more than anything else. It gives me great pride to include these young women in a movement that I have been a part of. The environment is our collective responsibility and I hope that all of my young friends continue to shoulder this responsibility and encourage more to join this movement. "Beach cleaning activity shouldn’t be just one-day activity, every individual should participate in this activity on a regular basis. I feel it's our responsibility to keep our environment clean and if we want to change then it should start from us first.”

In total, the contestants cumulatively collected a total of 1628.5 kgs of garbage.  The girls not only collected plastic bags, bottles, and other non-biodegradable garbage but also pledged to continue their support to dedicate some of their own time to this cause.
