Green Journey Inns
Home > Green Journey Inns

The Minnesota Bed and Breakfast Association's Green Journey is a “green” self-certification program to recognize member inns who are making a commitment to be good environmental stewards. 

Inns participating in the “Green Journey Program” are on a journey to decrease their environmental footprint and operate their businesses in a socially responsible manner. Participants realize that being environmental and socially responsible, is the right thing to do, good for the environment and good for their community. Participants do not view the Green Journey Program as a fixed goal but rather a journey whereby each year participants seek to advance their environmental goals and achievements.

Under this program Bed and Breakfasts are awarded up to five Green Leaves and one additional green plus symbols (+) based upon their level of participation. Five green leaves and a green + represent the highest level of green achievement. To view Green Journey levels of achievement click here. 

Many Green Journey inns have also been recognized as a green-friendly-sustainable businesses by  Green Routes,” a Minnesota based independent non-profit authentic travel self-certification program.  Green Journey inns so recognized may also display the Green Routes logo.

List below are the Inns on a Green Journey with the number of green leaves signifying their level of achievement.

Stay at a lodging that cares about and strives to limit its impact on the planet.  We have employed many measures to make our inn a place that reflects our values of balance with all life on this earth.  While not perfect, we are always striving to do more. The 3 floor, 6000 square foot log home our family shares with you averages only about $200/ month in heating due to our off peak electric heat, tight construction and thorough insulation.  Of course we do all the obvious things too: recycling, low flow water, energy efficient appliances, florescent lighting and green household products.  We are a Green Routes destination.  Find out more about Green Routes at: http://www.greenroutes.org/
