Gizzelle Uys made South Africa proud by winning the title of Miss Eco International 2021 and flying the flag high on the international stage.


Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt (13 April 2021) – Gizzelle Uys, the reigning Miss Eco South Africa, flew the flag high in Egypt recently at the Miss Eco International pageant, where she walked away with the winning crown.

Miss Eco International is a pageant that celebrates women with a passion for saving the planet and making choices that are better for the environment. They focus on promoting the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

“This competition focuses on the wellness of the mind, body and spirit of all the candidates that represent all the countries from all over the world.” – Miss Eco International

The beauty competition consisted of 17 days in Egypt where the women engage in various cultural activities all while preparing for the final event.

Gizzelle’s win marks not only a first for South Africa but also a first for Africa as a whole. While the event takes place in Africa, there has never been a winner from the continent until now.

This is a wonderful achievement. Gizzelle has been so thankful for her win and all the support she has received leading up to it and to date.

You can take a look at her message of thanks below.
