Dom Hughes, Co-Founder: Myriad

So, I worked in the recycling industry after graduation, which gave me an insight into end-of-life products and the journey they go on. One of the key things I took away from that was that recycling is good, but there's so much more that we can do to take it a step further and obtain a greater value from the products. A lot of this boils down to how the products are designed...

Liam Ulla, Founder: The Coacoara Foundation

I have always wanted to own a charity, or something that can give back, throughout my life, and be there when I’m not here as well.

Stephanie Wyatt, Miss Earth 2019

Miss Earth is different to your everyday beauty pageant. It is an environmentally-focused competition, which is a platform for change. For example, one of our challenges, which was judged, was to create an eco-warrior outfit. I decided to make mine completely out of real flowers. I believe that we are sending out a message here, showing the public that we all have a responsibility to preserve and attend to the needs of the world we live in...
