Miss Lebanon Earth 2011, Nathaly Farraj, visited Tripoli for two consecutive days in response to the invitation received from the khan of soap to take part in the environmental campaign that is carried out by the khan in collaboration with the Ministry of Environment & Industry and the craft union.
The campaign aims to shed light on the crafts and the Lebanese industries which are 100% natural and manufactured without any chemicals added.
The first day included a visit to the archaeological khan, within the old markets of Tripoli, that dates back to 6000 BC and where the Miss was acquainted with the civilization of the archaeological khan and the cultures that the khan has gone through.
The second day was a ceremony honoring the media personalities of the north who had spent decades in serving the pen to let the voice of Tripoli reach all Lebanon and the world, and who supported the khan of soap and stood by its side.
The owner of the Khan, Dr. Bader Hassoun, spoke about the importance of the khan and the industry that they are performing, stressing that its importance consists in being natural and environmentally friendly, and making mention of the global certificate ISO bearing the number 1 in the Arab world and Africa and 10 in the world in the manufacture of cosmetics.
Later Nathaly gave a speech saying that beauty and nature are linked to each other and that her mission is to educate people about the environment and to encourage environmentally friendly industries that contribute to a better living on a natural land, free of environmental pollution.
Next she visited the environmental village, in the Koura region, that was created lately by the khan of soap, and she got to learn the full stages through which the soap is manufactured, from plant cultivation to the process of packaging for sale.
At the end of her visit, the beauty queen stressed that the campaign would continue and that she would do several activities with the khan, and with many events to promote the environmental project.
