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.

    I just bought my tickets and I’ll be making it for this event!

    If anybody else out there is planning a trip make sure you use the travel meta-search site to find the best prices on flights and hotels. They search pretty much every travel provider on the web in a matter of seconds. It’s the best site for finding the lowest price (and it’s free). I wouldn’t have been able to afford this trip if I hadn’t found such great deals from there.

    Hello! The Ms Earth Pageant is a Philippine franchise. It might sound a bit strange but the pageant does help raise environmental awareness esp in this country (the Phils) where the biggest concern of the average Filipino is 3 meals a day.

  4. Boracay is known for its nightlife and parties, but aside from that there is more to explore of the island. There is the exploration of marine life by scuba/snorkel & reef walking on the small islands that surround Boracay. There are caves to explore, the long white beach to stroll on, not to mention the fun atv ride to the highest point of the island! But what loved about the place is the carefree attitude of the people there, where one’s goal is to have fun and not think about work, or time constraints. You can just let go & have the best time of your life!
