At the 2022 Macon-Bibb County Earth Day Festival, Team Green recognized three community members or organizations who are doing their part to keep our community beautiful. These recognitions are awarded to those who use their place and skills in the community to implement green initiatives, focus on beautification and preservation, and educate others to do the same.

The Community Advocate award was presented to Mayor Lester Miller and his partners in the Clean Streets Matter program. Since it started a year ago, hundreds of people have cleaned over 123 TONS of trash and debris from our streets and sidewalks.

Also recognized at the event, Joey Fernandez received the Preservation Champion Award for his work at historic Rose Hill Cemetery., and the Bibb County School District received the Sustainability Initiative Award for achieving Energy Star certification.
