September 2017 Sustainable Champion – Marianne Leone

September 2017 Sustainable Champion – Marianne Leone

Marianne is a long-time environmental champion and promotes a positive quality of life for the residents of Voorhees.

As an avid photographer for many years, her favorite subjects are animal species in danger and national parks. Her enthusiasm for photography has led to the publication of a coffee table book “1 ZOO. 10 YEARS. 100 PHOTOGRAPHS” which is the culmination of a decade of photographs at the Philadelphia Zoo.

Marianne joined the Sustainable Voorhees Green Team and spearheaded the Creative Assets Inventory action. She was instrumental in creating the Arts on the Boulevard program at the Voorhees Town Center. The program’s summer exhibit features artwork of 28 local artists and 80 pieces of art displayed in the windows of storefronts.

Marianne is organizing Voorhees’ first Green Fair slated for Sunday October 8th at the Voorhees Town Center.

She also assisted Sustainable Voorhees in earning Silver Level certification through Sustainable Jersey. Marianne’s eagerness to participate and her knowledge of the principles of sustainable living have proven to be an invaluable resource to the municipality’s sustainability movement.

We are proud to recognize Marianne Leone as our Camden County Sustainability Champion for the month of September.
