Green Tourism Businesses
Support these Travel Green Wisconsin certified businesses
The Wisconsin Department of Tourism initiated Travel Green Wisconsin in 2006 to promote smart, environmentally friendly business practices. The program is the first state-sponsored sustainable travel certification program in the nation and has become a model for sustainable travel efforts both nationally and internationally. As more and more travelers like you look to make your life a little greener, we hope you'll appreciate and support the tourism businesses that are working hard to reduce their own environmental impact.
