The Press Presentation of Miss Earth 2019 took place in three different spots inside Diamond Hotel Manila. First, the 85 Official Candidates did their floral and advocacy introductions at the Diamond Ballroom before heading over to the hotel’s main lobby for a big group photo. Right after, they slipped into their Ricky Abad swimsuits and gathered at the poolside for a nice traditional shot.
This year’s floral theme made the entire proceedings more colorful as each Earth Warrior showed pride in the national flowers of their countries with corresponding medicinal qualities.
No Darling of the Press was awarded this time around, but instead, each of the ladies gifted guests with a plant seedling the recipient could grow into a tree – reason for their hashtag #meandmytree.
Early favorites are the delegates from Puerto Rico, India, Ghana, Spain, Netherlands, South Africa, USA, Belarus, Philippines, Poland, Czech Republic, Brazil and Australia.
Between now and next week, the ladies will be traveling around the Philippines for their assigned eco-tours in Misamis Oriental, Davao, Batangas, Cavite and Bataan. Different segments of the competition will also take place in different parts of Metro Manila plus Albay and Pampanga.
