The organization of Miss Earth opted for a virtual ceremony to crown the next Miss Earth 2020 due to the rise in the cases of the coronavirus in the countries. The competition begin on 21st September 2020 and the grand finale was held a few hours ago where Miss Earth USA 2020 Lindsey Marie Coffey was virtually crowned as the new Miss Earth 2020. She has succeeded Miss Earth 2019 Nellys Pimentel of Puerto Rico for the title.



Lindsey is 28-years-old and stands 176 cm tall and earned a bachelor’s degree in political science and a minor in communication arts. She is someone who strongly believes in natural beauty and urges everyone to embrace it in their own way possible. She is a huge supporter and advocate for mental health and she connects with fellow models who are under mental stress and help them back into a mentally calm and safe space. She hopes to build an animal sanctuary to empty the kennels and to rescue the ill-treated. Another reason she loves nature so much is because she loves animals and strongly feels that it is a home to so many beautiful creatures.

Miss Earth 2020 Lindsey Coffey’s court includes:

Miss Earth-Air 2020: Miss Earth Venezuela 2020 Stephany Zreik

Miss Earth-Water 2020: Miss Earth Philippines 2020 Roxanne Allison Baeyens

Miss Earth-Fire 2020: Miss Earth Denmark 2020 Michala Rubinstein

Her long-term goal is to obtain a Juris Doctor degree and implement new legislation to protect and improve our society and planet. To reduce her carbon footprint, she is a vegetarian and always shops organic and local. She enjoys volunteering for Adopt-A-Highway, Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, and The Humane Society. She was one of our favorites for the title too as she showed immense dedication and determination towards the title.

Lindsey’s advocacy for the competition was the water crisis as she feels that it poses the most immediate risk as it affects humanity and regional stability. She explained, “Our water on Earth is limited due to pollution, overuse and the increase of demand, lack of or outdated infrastructure, as well as changes in weather patterns due to global warming. Globally, we must turn to ecological restoration, contour farming, rainwater harvesting, and desalination in order to combat this crisis.”

The diva’s duty as a representative of the Miss Earth organization her reach is monumentally more expansive. She feels that it is her primary duty to promote the mission and conduct hands on work as a beauty for a cause. Her goal is to encourage conversation with others, to amplify her voice, influence others to use their voices, to share on social media, and to con-duct impactful media outreach. She will promote ecotourism by partnering with green hotels and by “acting local” during each tour she will be travelling.

She added, “I am encouraging others to get involved and be part of climate action. My hands-on community work will focus on areas that are hit hard with the effects of climate change. Showing firsthand work in these communities will create momentum for change.”

Congratulations queen!
