Featured Member Program

Council Members are out in the community every day making a big difference for the environment, sustainability and health of Tennessee.   Whether you have “net zero” energy consumption in your home, are a model of recycling and composting, working on community gardens, come out on weekends to help us plant trees, or are working to protect and improve our environment in some other way, we want to recognize you!

Each quarter the Tennessee Environmental Council will showcase a featured Individual member and Organization/Business member on the website and through our email communications.  You can share your story and others will learn from your success.   Businesses & organizations may also attract more supporters.

You may nominate yourself or your organization OR nominate a Council member, business/organization in the community that you feel deserves this recognition.
