After all, OOTD photos look way more authentic when you look comfortable in what you’re wearing.

Merrell’s bet Miss Philippines the new Miss Earth 2017

Our very own Philippine candidate Karen Ibasco is the new Miss Earth as she won the judges, the crowd over and sealed the deal during the question and answer portion where she inspired us by saying that “as a global community, our micro efforts will have a macro effect to help save our home”.  Since the beginning of her Miss Philippines Earth journey, leading global outdoor footwear brand Merrell has been with Miss Karen Ibasco for her special campaign on Urban Advocacies. Miss Earth 2017 Karen Ibasco showcasing comfort and style with the 1SIX8 Heathered AC+ while she shares her thoughts on how small thoughtful acts can effect a big change in the environment and on us, whether living in or outside of the city.

Miss Earth Philippines 2017 Karen Ibasco in Merrell 1SIX8 Heathered Moc AC+

An advocacy that Karen passionately campaigns for is the use of reusable, sustainable energy to reduce emissions in the atmosphere to lessen global warming. She promotes walking or cycling as eco friendly modes of getting around the city.  The need to use vehicles and potential emissions is reduced while also doing your body a favour by exercising.  “We can walk if the distance is near or just use bikes (bicycles)” says Ibasco who was sporting the newest Merrell 1SIX8 Heathered Moc AC+.  

To make walking more enjoyable and comfortable, try out the latest lifestyle collection from Merrell which is designed for all your urban adventures. The ISIX8 AC+ features innovative materials and premium fabrics with open-air mesh for breathability, a FIT.ECO blended EVA contoured foot bed with organic odor control, and an EVA midsole for stability and comfort. This 1SIX8 line is made more comfy with the addition of the Air Cushion + technology that secures heel-to-toe comfort for effortless walking around town! Ladies can choose a pair of the 1SIX8 AC+ in various colors and styles such as laces, moccasins, and Mary Janes!

Here are the other Miss Earth 2017 Queens tell all:


Merrell 1SIX8 Heathered MJ AC+

Miss Earth Nigeria 2017 Eucharia Akani shares her advocacy on education and awareness for the    eradication and safe management of active gas flows in her community. The 19  year-­old Theatre Arts    Student is also working hard in partnering with the World Bank to be able to help put a stop for such    dangerous gas flows by  2030.       


Merrell 1SIX8 Heathered MJ AC+

A    registered nurse by profession, Miss Earth Canada 2017 Jacqueline Marsh, is no stranger to the need to be active in preserving life. As a Miss Earth candidate, Marsh already has her advocacy on water    consumption as top priority to focus on during her reign. “I live next to the largest freshwater lake in    the world so it’s an issue that’s close to my heart. We need to preserve this resource for the future generations” adds Marsh. Her first steps?—Educating people starting from her community and eventually people outside her town and making them aware of the importance and ways of water consumption and conservation.    

Merrell 1SIX8 Heathered Moc AC+

For Miss Earth Colombia 2017 Juliana Franco, reducing consumption and  waste are  essential in    lessening our negative impact to nature. She envisions an emission-­‐less (or    free) world  and to keep    this advocacy rolling, she is set on spreading awareness and informing people to be mindful of   whatever they buy and consume and the process it undergoes before it hits the market leaves    pollution and damage to the planet. Ultimately, her goal is to inspire people change their habits little by    little so we can all contribute for a green environment.   


Merrell 1SIX8 Heathered Lace AC+

Reducing carbon footprint can easily be done at the comfort  of  your own home. Take it from Miss    Earth England 2017 Charloce Brooke, a vegan and animal-­‐lover, who strongly advocates reducing    footprints by being conscious of what we eat. For her, most of the food we eat, especially meat and    dairy, undergoes processes that leave a heavy impact to our environment. She hopes to encourage    more people to try a greener lifestyle and to empower everyone that no matter where they are, there    will always be little and big ways to care for our surroundings.
