We are so pleased to see Trip Advisor kicking off their GreenLeaders program. This program will provide travelers with a transparent system to find eco-friendly lodging properties. Over 1000 properties have been “certified” earning one of four levels of certification.
Pinehurst Inn once again stands out as a leader in sustainability and eco-friendly practices. We are very proud to have been involved during the planning phases for this program as we assisted in the development of the survey. In the end, our practices have earned us a Platinum status, the highest available.
So why is this important? We are finding that our guests and the travelers coming to Bayfield are truly interested in finding eco-conscious places to stay, to eat and the recreate. This program, and others such as Travel Green Wisconsin, provide a mechanism to find and support such businesses. We applaud Trip Advisor for recognizing this need and stepping up to create an important travel tool.
