B&Bs That Believe Earth Day is Every Day

Posted: Thu-Apr-2012

We have an especially soft spot for Earth Day (it’s April 22) here in Wisconsin.  Maybe it’s because the force behind the first Earth Day was Wisconsin’s own Senator Gaylord Nelson.  Or because of our state’s proud farming heritage (you can even  stay at a B&B on a working farm) and abundant natural resources.  Here at the Wisconsin B&B Association, we have another reason to support Earth Day in a big way – it’s because B&Bs were among the first tourism businesses in the state to step up and be Travel Green Wisconsin certified when the voluntary certification program launched some five years ago, and our lodging segment remains a pioneer yet today in the state’s green movement.  If you’re looking for a B&B getaway that will allow your eco-conscience to rest easy without giving up the amenities you love, then choose from any of our Travel Green Wisconsin certified inns.   You’ll have nearly 40 to choose from!  Happy Earth Day everyone.
