Every bit counts: Myleene and her daughters helped clean a remote Maldives beach while staying at Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort
KONOTTA ISLAND, MALDIVES — Singer, media presenter, model and ambassador for Save the Children (UK), Myleene Klass relaxed with her family at Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort during the Christmas and New Year festive period. She and her young family also volunteered to clean up plastic from a neighbouring island in the atoll. Klass posted pictures to her instagram account of her family, baby son Apollo (4 months) and daughters Ava (12) and Hero (8), and her partner Simon, all relaxing while wearing Christmas hats on Konotta’s idyllic tropical palm beach. Klass wrote on her Instagram account: “Merry Xmas to you and your loved ones. I still cannot believe I have Apollo in my arms and this is what my family now looks like this Christmas.”
She added: “This little boy is the most amazing gift we’ve been blessed with. I wish you love at this time. I hope wherever you are, whoever you’re with, that you have peace in your life. Merry Xmas from our little tribe. X.” While there, Klass and her family got hands-on to help the environment. They did a beach clean with Outrigger hosts on a neighbouring island. She wrote: “Doing this with my son strapped to me and my daughters leading the charge, makes me so proud to see them consciously taking action. They could have stayed in the pool all day, eating ice cream, they’re on holiday after all, but they chose to set their alarms, to join in and to be the change they want to see in the world. I love my kids!” A video of her family cleaning the beach was also posted on her Instagram account.
John Allanson, General Manager, of the Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort, said: “Myleene and her family did a great job collecting plastic and polystyrene. They really got into it. Guests who are keen to make a positive difference while they’re on holiday in the Maldives is a trend we encourage at Outrigger.” Apart from beach cleanups and excursions with its marine biologist, Outrigger Konotta Maldives Resort operates according to a robust recycling, reducing and reusing environmental philosophy, which is part of Outrigger’s global OZONE (Outrigger’s zone) marine conservation initiative.
