Ibasco was asked who or what she thinks is the biggest enemy of Mother Earth and why.
In verbatim, she answered:
I believe that the real problem in this world is not climate change. The real problem is us because of our ignorance and apathy. What we have to do is to start changing our ways, to start recalibrating our minds and redirecting our steps because together, as a global community, our micro efforts will have a macro-effect to help save our home, our planet.
The last time the Philippines won Miss Earth was in 2015, represented by Angelia Ong. She also succeeded another Filipina beauty queen, Jamie Herrel, who won the in 2014.
