On June 8, 5 – 6 pm, at the Baileys Harbor Town Hall, David Spiegelberg, regional tourism specialist with the Wisconsin Department of Tourism, will return to Door County to encourage local business owners to join the ranks of Aldo Leopold and Gaylord Nelson and help lead Wisconsin into a sustainable future by becoming Travel Green Wisconsin Certified.
Travel Green Wisconsin is a voluntary, affordable certification that reviews, certifies and recognizes tourism businesses that have made a commitment to continuously improve their operations in order to reduce their environmental impact. Travel Green is designed to give the state’s tourism businesses an effective marketing edge, promote smart business practices, reduce overall bottom lines and ultimately protect the beauty and vitality of Wisconsin’s landscape.
Travel Green Wisconsin is the first of its kind state-sponsored sustainable travel green certification in the nation and has become a model for sustainable and environmentally friendly travel efforts both nationally and internationally. From cost savings and increased marketing opportunities to providing a positive environmental impact and supporting local businesses, the benefits of being Travel Green Wisconsin certified are abundant. Currently more than 400 Wisconsin tourism businesses and organizations (52 in Door County alone) have already been certified as Travel Green Wisconsin businesses.
