Do you have a passion for travel, sightseeing, and new experiences? Imagine yourself seated on the sprawling front porch of a historic bed and breakfast nestled within a quaint waterfront village. Birds rest gingerly on the branches of a shade tree in the front yard, the fresh outdoor air carries notes of lilac and evergreen to awaken your senses while the sunset stains
the sky with vivid streaks of yellow, orange, and red. Framed by 300 miles of rocky, scenic shoreline, Door County is home to oceanfront experiences and seaside escapes hidden within the heart of the Midwest. Bolstering five state parks, 19 county parks, five inland lakes, and 53 beaches where Lake Michigan washes ashore, preserving the majestic, natural beauty of the peninsula is engrained within the life and culture of the area. If you appreciate the environment like we do, then a Door County getaway is the perfect chance for you to escape and revel in the beauty of nature while remaining a good steward of Mother Earth.

From luxurious resorts to one-of-a-kind bed and breakfasts, secluded cottages, and rustic, waterfront campsites — Door County offers visitors an assortment of lodging options guaranteed to suit every taste and budget while remaining environmentally friendly. Launched in 2006, Travel Green promotes smart, environmentally friendly businesses offering certification to those who earn a total of 35 points or more in nine sustainable, eco-friendly categories ranging from waste reduction to education and landscape conservation. By patronizing green businesses you are investing in a sustainable future locally, nationally, as well as, internationally that undoubtedly preserves and protects the environment for generations to come. By purchasing local fruit, vegetables, fish, and other food staples along with organic cleaning products and recycled paper products, Travel Green certified lodging establishments support local businesses and lessen their environmental impact. This effort is carried over into on-site composting programs to reduce waste, fluorescent lighting to reduce energy use, and regular maintenance of water-using appliances such as faucets and toilets to conserve water. Every little bit of effort makes a difference as many Door County Travel Green certified businesses have discovered. In just a year, Door County participants of Travel Green were able to save over $17,000 in energy costs and reduce annual CO2 emissions by over 207,000 pounds.

As you begin planning your next trip, sit back and relax. The guess work is already done. Treat yourself to a stay at one of Door County’s finest Travel Green certified establishments where you can do your part to preserve the environment one day of vacation at a time. With a plethora of green activities from kayaking to hiking, biking, and golf vying to fill your schedule, you’re sure to never have a dull moment. So what are you waiting for?
