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. You can search for participating businesses below. You can also learn more about what businesses must do to qualify for the Maine Environmental Leader program.
