Noelle was recognized for many reasons, but a few of them are because she built her home from repurposed materials not treated with chemicals, she heats and cooks with wood to reduce carbon footprint, and she lives “off the grid” with generated and solar power, which reduces her family’s use of fossil fuels.

In addition to these big actions, Noelle stays up-to-date on environmental issues and politics by subscribing to sustainable e-newsletters/publications, cares about the politics and issues concerning the future of our planet, and recently was selected by CROPP to attend the Bioneers Conference in California.

Congratulations to Noelle!
