People of the Years Awards launch 2022
L-R: Sinead McGeown, Traynors, Kellie Gray Armagh I Marketing Executive and Neil Traynor, Traynors. Traynors are the proud sponsor of the Eco Warrior category

With the rising concern for the future of the planet making headlines, locally, there are many people who make small contributions today for a brighter future tomorrow.

The Eco Warrior Award provides an opportunity to recognize and reward environmental heroes who are working towards a sustainable environmental future in their own battle against global change.

Perhaps it is someone who has found creative ways to manage their household waste during the recent strike action?

It’s the small things that this award will celebrate people for. So, if you know someone who works towards a greener future, why not nominate them today.
