rest April 22, 1970. The first Earth Day. Founded by Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin to raise environmental consciousness. Wisconsinites continue to dig in to the easy Earth Day tenets of preserving the IN WISCONSIN environment and enhancing our quality of life. That brings us to the notion of an eco- friendly vacation, a concept the Wisconsin Department of Tourism pioneered when it launched Travel Green Wisconsin ™ in 2006. Travel Green was the first certification program in the country that went beyond accommodations to include tourism businesses of all sorts-events, attractions, restaurants, and everything in between. So if leaving a lighter footprint is important to you, then consider patronizing the hundreds of Travel Green Wisconsin TM certified businesses when visiting. Visit travelwisconsin.com for a listing. To summarize: Go green. Have fun. Rest easy.
