LATEST: KAREN IBASCO, FOURTH FILIPINA TO WIN MISS EARTH 2017!




Karen Ibasco is Miss Earth Philippines 2017
 Miss Philippines Karen Ibasco has just been crowned as the new Miss Earth 2017.
This has been the fourth Miss Earth title for the Philippines as the country has snagged the crown in 2008 (Karla Henry), 2014 (Jamie Herrell) and 2015 (Angelia Ong).
The other winners of the night included Miss Australia Nina Robertson for Miss Air 2017 and Miss Russia Leda Akimova for Miss Fire 2017.


Karen also gave an insightful response during the Q&A portion of the competition.
When asked what the biggest enemy of Mother Earth is and why, she said, “I believe that the real problem in this world is not climate change. The real problem is us because of ignorance and apathy. What we have to do is to start changing our ways, to start recalibrating our minds and redirecting our steps because together, as a global community, our micro-efforts will have a macro-affect to save out home, our planet.”
Ibasco's advocacy is conserving energy and embracing renewable and sustainable sources. Australia’s Nina Robertson was crowned Miss Earth-Air, while Colombia’s Juliana Franco and Russia's Lada Akimov were named Miss Earth-Water and Miss Earth-Fire, respectively. (SunStar Philippines)
