On Sunday June 5th, 2022, the Town of Erin’s Environment & Sustainability Advisory Committee (ESAC) organized its first World Environment Day celebration at the Townhall grounds in Hillsburgh.
In addition to a compost donation, sale of rain barrels, promotion of composting tools and a selection of eco-vendors booths, the Committee also held the ceremony for their annual Environment Award, recognizing an individual, organization, project or initiative contributing to environmental sustainability in the Town of Erin.
I was honored to be the Awardee for this year, the committee recognizing the “outstanding sustainability contribution to Erin in such a short time and the leadership demonstrated in the initiation of organizing the first Earth Day event in the Town of Erin”.
The award comes with a contribution of $500 that Esper’Ance in Action will use to continue its Project Neutral campaign in Erin, a pilot before launching a wider, County level initiative.

I am humbled and honored to receive the Environment Award for 2022 and follow the path of previous recipients who have been an inspiration since the start of Esper’Ance in Action. The Town of Erin is full of potential and home to many environmental trailblazers so getting a recognition from the community is empowering and a great boost to continue working on Esper’Ance and do even more to tackle climate change.
I want to thank the Town of Erin but also all the volunteers, especially from the ESAC Committee, who are doing so much to build a more sustainable future for our Community. It is great to be part of a community who cares and is committed to work on our society’s biggest challenges!
Abel Page, Founder Esper’Ance in Action
