BORACAY ISLAND, Aklan, Nov. 3 – The Miss Earth Foundation is set to promote this resort island in 90 countries, as it is the venue for the international pageant to be held on November 22.
Catherine Untalan, Miss Earth Philippines executive director, said that they have been urging several stakeholders in this resort island to ensure that Boracay is clean once the candidates from all over the world arrive on November 18.
The Miss Earth Philippines recently led hundreds of volunteers from the Boracay Special Protection Office, Malay local government, Philippine Dental Association-Boracay, Philippine Coast Guard-Auxiliary, Boracay Foundation Incorporated and the Boracay executives in a coastal clean-up activity.
The activity was in coordination with the Agham group dubbed as Bora-Kay Linis 2009 (Boracay so clean).
"The Miss Earth Foundation finds Boracay as the appropriate venue for the pageant night. We hope that every sector in Boracay would cooperate as we are promoting not only Boracay but also we would give impression to the world that we can be good stewards of the environment," Untalan said.
This year's Philippine representative to the Miss Earth pageant is Sandra Seifert from Negros Occidental province. (PNA) LAP/AJP/JNAguirre/vlo
