Riley Flannery earns 2018 Silver Award


Appalled by the huge amount of waste being produced at her local church, Riley took action to change it! Working with local organization ecomaine, Riley put together information sessions for the members of her church, addressing topics of recycling and composting. She put together a “Green Team” for the church and set up a table to share more information about it, as well had magnets, pencils and recycling bins for anyone to take to give away.

She also convinced the members of the church to stop using with plastic silverware for church suppers. By using metal silverware, the church’s waste decreased immensely.

Riley knows that with a little bit of hard work, she can make a big difference, and she is proud that she is making her corner of the earth a greener place.
