Beauties and the Bests for Earth's Sustainability

The "Beauties" are Ms. Jeanne Angeles Harn (Miss Philippines-Earth 2007), Ms. Anna Katrina Bautista (Ms. Philippines-Eco-Tourism 2007), and Ms. Catherine Untalan (Ms. Earth-Water 2006/3rd Placer, Ms Earth-International and Ms. Philippines-Earth 2006).

The "Bests" include the Miss Earth and Miss Philippines-Earth beauty pageants and the most noteworthy environment projects and activities for earth's sustainability that the winners of the pageants do.

Hear them in Kalikasan, Kaunlaran! (KK!) at DZRH-AM radio on May 7, 2008, Wednesday, at 7:30-8:30 PM. Directing and hosting the weekly radio program is Dr. Cora Claudio, President, EARTH Institute Asia, and member of the Board of Judges for Ms. Philippines-Earth 2008.

Miss Earth®, which started in 2001, is a beauty pageant "whose raison d'etre is to have its candidates and winners actively promote, and get involved in, the preservation of the environment and the protection of Mother Earth."

The winners of the pageant are required to participate actively in environmental information, education and communication projects and activities of the pageant and the Miss Earth Foundation in various Asian countries, such as, the Clean Air project in Vietnam and the Coastal Clean-up and the "I Love My Planet Earth" School Tour projects in the Philippines.

You will also hear more about the Malunggay Para sa KK, 2M Puno Para sa KK and other projects of EARTH/KK! in partnership with various public and private organizations. The contests offer cash prizes and the projects provide livelihood while protecting and enhancing the environment. You may join all of them by being a registered KK! listener.
