Like the rest of the world, Maine businesses are navigating the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage you to check websites for your destinations before visiting for the latest health and safety guidelines in place, and please remember to be patient and kind while visiting.
Maine Green Lodging Certification Program
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.
