OVERVIEW AND SPONSORSHIP

Miss Earth Australia is a national beauty pageant that promotes awareness of environmental issues and the steps that can be taken by everyone to reduce our environmental footprint.

Our pageant is part of Miss Earth International, which has organization in 120 countries and is now one of the world’s top three international beauty pageants.

Contestants come from all States and Territories. The winner, Miss Earth Australia 2017, will be sent to the international pageant to compete against candidates from around the world.

This year Miss Earth Australia is asking everyone to plant trees because they remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and, symbolically, they are objects of beauty. Our sponsors, however, are asked to plant trees to inspire those around them (such as family, friends, suppliers, clients and employees) to initiate their own tree planting scheme.

A national tree planting scheme can make a huge difference to the atmosphere and to attitudes. Small steps lead to bigger steps and, on a national scale, they add up to a significant cumulative achievement.

Australians are very concerned about the well being of the environment. They want to do something that is significant and achievable. This is an opportunity for your business to support our cause and to be recognized by the community as socially and environmentally responsible.

THE CONTESTANTS

About 100 contestants will be invited from around Australia to the Central Coast for the National Pageant and a week of training and activities.

Before coming to Sydney they will speak to groups in their communities about environmental issues and of the many worthwhile strategies that can be taken to cut down on energy use and save water. They will encourage the audience to plant trees and solicit support for this cause.

PLEASE SUPPORT US

www.missearthaustralia.com.au

Becoming a supporter means partnering with us in this cause. We are here to encourage every Australian and businesses to plant at least one tree. This requires worthy ambition because trees extract CO2 from the atmosphere and convert it to trunks, branches, leaves and flowers.

All of us has to take their first step to clean our atmosphere and environment. Planting trees are worthwhile because they clean up the atmosphere, stabilize river banks, provide shade and prevent soil erosion.

The earth is a beautiful place and every human creature has the responsibility to take care of it and preserve the magnificent beauty of our planet. This is the core value of Miss Earth Australia - this is our campaign that every community will take action towards supporting a cleaner environment.
