*Tamara Henry competed in the Miss Arkansas - America Pageant system from 1991-1994... placed in the top ten twice... and was the winner of the Fruit of the Loom Quality of Life Award and the Community Service Award for a program she created - "Promoting Health through Whole Person Wellness" - an inspirational program about mind/body/spirit/Earth. Since winning the title of Miss Arkansas 1997, Tamara has been giving back a scholarship: "The Tamara Henry Broadcast Journalism Award."

"Green T" wears her recycled, re-used vintage suit from Back-In-Style to interview the 2010 Miss America contestants. Sheffield MacIntyre of Back-In-Style gives "Green T" advice on how to dress "greenly" and still look fashionable.  Seven-million tons of clothing & textiles get dumped into municipal landfills each year. Wearing recycled clothing can make a big difference.  

In 2007, Tamara covered the EMA Environmental Media Assn Awards for her eco-spiritual talk show on Time Warner Cable TV - LA. You can see the video on her blog at
