Do YOU Want to Be the Next Green Model?


If you do, check out Project Green Search. It’s the model competition for women who want to use their natural beauty to give back to the planet, and proves that brains, compassion and community involvement can definitely go along with fabulous looks.

I’m excited for this competition, because not only is this the first green model competition of it’s kind, but because I’m a judge, along with Darren Moore, eco model Summer Rayne Oakes, green cosmetics guru and model Josie Maran, eco fashion designer Deborah Lindquist and Michael Kalinski, CEO of Omniquest Media.

* If not yet represented, a contract with Option Model Management, an international model management agency for print, runway and television.
* A professional photography session complete with make-up, wardrobe and portfolio images.
* A 20 piece Eco-Fashion wardrobe.

* A feature in Organic Spa Magazine.
* A cover feature on Electrifying Times Magazine.
* A spread in Coco Eco Magazine.
* A story in Route 66 Pulse.
