X-Factor presenter in dress made entirely from recycled newspapers!
KONNIE Huq looks ‘green’ hot as Marilyn Monroe – as she dons recycled newspapers for a climate campaign!
The X-Factor presenter was unveiled as the ambassador for npower’s successful green programme Climate Cops SOS in a photo shoot recreating the iconic still from Marilyn Monroe’s The Seven Year Itch.
Climate Cops SOS, now in its third year, is designed to motivate the UK’s greenest teens into turning their passion for the environment into a positive campaign for their area.
Posing in a dress crafted entirely from pages of recycled newspapers, the Xtra Factor and former Blue Peter presenter gives environmental issues a real wow factor to inspire the 10 finalist schools to get creative with their own green projects.
As someone who has been involved with npower Climate Cops SOS from the start, she is looking forward to encouraging the children to think innovatively about their own campaigns.
Konnie said: “Young people can be really innovative about solving green issues in their area. The npower Climate Cops SOS campaign helps them to get their creative juices flowing in a fun and engaging way, trying to come up with ideas and solutions to environmental issues. I’m really looking forward to helping them with their campaigns – I have no doubt there’ll be a few future geniuses to watch out for!”
Clare McDougall, npower’s head of community and education added: “We’re delighted that the Climate Cops SOS campaign helps to make the projects of the UK’s greenest teens a reality.
“Konnie’s dress was made over two weeks using more than a thousand pages of unwanted newspapers. It’s an innovative take on recycling to inspire all kids to take on their own environmental projects.”
