Westwood Shores Now Travel Green Certified

Westwood Shores Waterfront Resort in Sturgeon Bay became the latest Travel Green certified business in Door County this month with 44 points.

Co-General Manager Greg Stillman said that Westwood Shores has followed many green practices since opening in 1996.

“Our guests are appreciative of our eco-friendly practices, and we look forward to implementing additional ideas in the future,” he said. “We are pleased to earn this distinction in recognition of our ongoing efforts.”

Travel Green Wisconsin is a voluntary certification program that recognizes tourism businesses for reducing their environmental footprint through eco-friendly practices. Applicants must earn a minimum of 30 points from a checklist of basic requirements covering a wide range of “green” practices, including:  waste reduction, reuse and recycling; energy efficiency, water conservation and wastewater management; air quality; wildlife and landscape; transportation; purchasing; and local community benefits. The Wisconsin Environmental Initiative, an independent third party, then certifies Travel Green Wisconsin applicants.
