Guam - They're beauties on a mission.

Before Rotarians today, 2013 Miss Earth Korea Catharina Choi Nunes and 2014 Miss Earth Philippines Jamie Herrell spoke about what they're doing to motivate others to go green.

Specifically, Herrell spoke on the think twice campaign that encourages people to assess and revise their everyday activities to be more earth-friendly. "Instead of taking a car, if your Point A and Point B is not so far, then why not just walk to lessen the carbon footprint and at the same time to keep ourselves sexy?" she asked. "At the same time, if we see trash on the floor, instead of putting it inside any bin why not segregate it?"

The beauties are here on island as part of tonight's Miss Earth Guam Pageant where fifteen contestants will compete for the Miss Earth Guam 2014 and Miss Earth Guam 2015 titles.

The pageant gets way at 7pm at the Sheraton Laguna Guam Resort.
