Von Hernandez organized campaigns against waste incinerators in the Philippines, which release cancer-causing dioxins into the air. Hernandez's campaigns led the Philippines to institute the world's first nationwide ban on waste incinerators.

The Goldman Environmental Prize is the world's largest prize for grassroots environmentalists. Each of the winners, chosen from the planet's six inhabited continental regions, demonstrate exceptional courage and commitment, often working at great risk to protect our environment. In the process, they inspire the rest of us to do the same.
