As you plan your next visit to Maine, consider staying at a business that is certified as a Maine Green Lodging property. Maine tourism businesses recognize the importance of protecting the state’s natural resources as it is these resources that make the state an attractive vacation destination.
A number of conservation-minded Maine businesses have been certified by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection as Environmental Leaders by implementing programs to:
- reduce energy;
- conserve water;
- minimize waste;
- use environmentally preferable cleaners;
- and educate the public and their customers about reducing their environmental impact.
Participating Maine green lodging properties all post the Environmental Leader flag at their places of business. View a map of participating businesses.
