What do your potential customers and other consumers get?

Travelers recognize your green certification as an indicator of a business that 
  cares about the greater good. People are inclined to do business with
  companies they respect.

- Many travelers, of course, seek out green businesses that are committed to 
  sustainability. They tend to share this information with other travelers,
  providing you with business referrals.

- These travelers will also gravitate to using local goods and services in 
  Maryland - your products - in their effort to patronize green businesses.

 

How does this help the environment?

- The Maryland Green Travel program provides you with a road map for 
  conserving environmental resources, such as energy and water.

- It gives you a way to support the preservation and protection of Maryland's
  special and unique resources, from wildlife habitats near the Chesapeake Bay
  to pristine mountain vistas in Western Maryland.

- The program helps you to improve the air quality in our cities and towns by
  reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
