Mayor Bradley says that he is extremely impressed with the cause of the Miss Earth franchise. He hopes that the delegates are able to promote civic pride in the wider community. The Miss Earth Beauty Pageant was launched in 2001 by Carousel Productions Inc., who believed that beauty queens would be good and effective advocates of worthy causes. Therefore, the Miss Earth pageant has its candidates and winners actively promote and get involved in the preservation of the environment and the protection of Mother Earth. 

The pageant also seeks to promote destinations across the globe through its delegates. The delegate that will showcase all of Belize in Bali, Indonesia on October 28 are any of the following: Kathalina Jones, Claudia Lara, Jessel Lauriano, Idolly Saldivar or Shandalee Smith. Those young ladies will compete to represent Belize on Saturday, August 18th, at the Bliss Center for the Performing Arts. Supporters of the pageant will tell you that what separates Miss Earth from other beauty pageants is the fact that Miss Earth has beauty with responsibility. The winner of Miss Earth will serve as the Ambassador to environmental protection campaigns worldwide.
