Our Visitors are taking note and green practices are informing their decisions on where to stay when they travel. The Bay Breeze Resort recognizes the power of eco tourism! We are a proud Travel Green Wisconsin certified Silver Leader. We’ve currently achieved 71 points out of the required 30 and have committed to installing an Electric Vehicle Charging Station by spring 2015. The Door County Visitor Bureau recently held their Electric Vehicle Charging Station Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and hopes to expand the network in Door County. They are the first destination marketing organization to take on an initiative like this and the ceremony featured special guest, Wisconsin Secretary of Tourism, Stephanie Klett to help launch the charging station network in Door County.  We believe a charging station compliments the green initiatives we’ve already put into place at Bay Breeze Resort, such as solar panels for water heating, energy efficient LED light bulbs, linen reuse program, low-flow fixtures on whirlpools and toilets, a controlled irrigation system and marketing materials printed using soy inks on recycled content.
