The MISS EARTH Pageant is an International Environmental Event channeling the beauty pageant entertainment industry as an effective tool to promote environmental awareness.
Because many people admire and aspire to be a beauty queen, Carousel Productions, Inc. believed beauty queens would be a good and effective advocate of worthy causes. To give life to this vision, Carousel Productions Inc. organized and launched in 2001 the MISS EARTH Beauty Pageant, a beauty event whose raison d'etre was to have its candidates and winners actively promote and get involved in the preservation of the environment and the protection of Mother Earth.
Apart from a strong emphasis on environmental protection programs, MISS EARTH also aims to showcase and promote various tourist destinations. Every year, 80 to 90 candidates from all over the world compete on beauty and knowledge of environmental issues.
The winner of MISS EARTH will serve as the Ambassador to environmental protection campaigns worldwide.
Now on it's 17th year, MISS EARTH continues to build its reputation as the most relevant and worthwhile beauty event in the world, setting a legacy of beauty and responsibility.
"BEAUTIES FOR A CAUSE"
The pageant is a search for the most beautiful women of the Earth to serve as a role model dedicated to uphold the advocacy to preserve and restore Mother Earth.

"My advocacy is the balance of eco-system because of the transformation of Viet Nam as a whole country towards an industrialized nation.
The proper knowledge on how to manage waste from manufacturing facilities that affects rivers and oceans. The air coming out from chimneys of the factories and the motorbikes that emits gases which would eventually lead to the air with breathe is my top priority on how to use the different vectors of communication in my marketing degree.
Lets us be aware of ill effects of pollution to our environment. Save our natural resources for future generation.
I admire women who are independent and intelligent who can speak out their mind and express themselves. Women that drives the community and their people towards better living condition for people who are living in poverty. Uplifting themselves to better conditions within their environment. How humanity should be treated accordingly."
