MANILA -- Miss Eco International has released the introduction video of Philippine representative Kathleen Paton. 

In the clip, Paton described herself as a "passionate advocate for mental health awareness and conserving the environment."

"Due to our geographical location, we are visited by an average of 20 typhoons and storms a year, wreaking havoc wherever it lands. Scientists around the world agree that climate change has a huge impact on typhoons. That's why my aim as Miss Eco Philippines is to inspire people to join this movement and educate them in saving our planet earth," said the beauty queen, who was born and raised in Boracay. 

"So let's start by being environmentally conscious. It all starts with small changes at home -- recycling, using less plastic, and thrifting clothes instead of buying new items," she added.

"I'm excited to be able to breathe in and embrace the history, the sights, the people, and its cuisine," she said.
