More and more Maine lodging properties are going green. What was once just a color is now a way of doing business and protecting our precious environment. Mainers know that our state's natural resources, our coastline, lakes and mountains, must be kept clean. That's what being green is all about, from recycling at our hotels and restaurants, buying local seafood, beef and produce, supporting organic farming, composting, and even using organic cotton linens, and paper products made from recycled paper.
At VisitMaine.net, we are pleased to present you with certified Green hotels, resorts and lodges that take the extra steps to be eco-friendly. These properties have earned the distinction of Maine Environmental Leader, by meeting or exceeding the Maine state DEP requirements as an environmentally responsible business. These Maine Green Lodging properties have implemented programs to be save energy, conserve water, reduce waste, use environmentally friendly cleaning products, purchase local foods whenever possible, and educate guests on the importance of reducing environmental impact in cooperation with the Maine Department of Environmental Protection.
You can do your part to be green by choosing a Maine Green lodging property on your next trip to Maine. And be sure to keep Maine clean by reusing your towels, recycling, putting trash in its place and leaving only your footprints on our mountains, roadways, trails and beaches.
