After a courtesy call with City Mayor Lina O. Montilla at the city hall, the environmental ambassadors visited the city’s Material Recovery Facility in Upper Katungal, the first fully functional Category 2 waste disposal and recycling facility in Mindanao.

The beautiful ladies then went on to Decela Eco Tourism Park, in the mountainous portion of New Passi to plant trees and stay true to their environmental advocacy.

Who said these ladies don’t know how to climb and get dirty so they could plant trees?

At the famed Baras Bird Sanctuary, Miss Philippines Earth beauties feasted their eyes on the variety (and hundreds) of birds in a protected sanctuary. Ms. Philippines Earth winner Jamie Herrell of Cebu even interviewed Mr. Rey Malana, the sanctuary owner and in charge, about Baras Bird Sanctuary.
