The 30 beauties competing for the “Miss Thailand World 2018” title joined workshops yesterday in Phetchburi and Prachuab Khiri Khan provinces on their second day in camp.
In the morning they gave alms to the monks then headed off to a fishing village in Soi Hua Hin 55 to collect garbage as part of a CSR activity organised by the pageant organiser and non-profit organisation Trash Hero Hua Hin.
“Trash Hero aims to raise awareness of marine conservation and stress the need to reduce garbage in order to save marine life. Sea animals die of eating plastic and the garbage in the sea is one of the main concerns. The only way to solve this situation is to reduce or stop the use of non-decomposing waste,” said Pennapa Kradtarn.
The candidates then travelled to Ace of Hua Hin Resort to exercise with the Fit-Training course led by trainer Anoma “Mayji” Saransikarin.
