Sustainable Tourism

From short to long stays, we’ll guide you to leaving a small footprint in Maine. 

We understand that the environment and sustainability can be important considerations while traveling, and we’ll gladly customize your activities in Maine if it’s your preference to “tread lightly.” We can guide you toward sustainable outdoor recreation and other travel initiatives that protect the environment, address climate change, and minimize plastic consumption. We’re connected with Maine tourism businesses and organizations who are addressing the needs of environmentally mindful visitors, the industry at large, and host communities – and that means we can make sustainable choices easily accessible to you.

So, stock up on your favorite environmentally-friendly sunscreen, and we’ll start planning your visit – whether it includes nature-based state park tours, whale watching (and respecting!), or guided hunting and fishing, we’ll map out your Maine Experience to be as eco-friendly as you are!  

Contact us today and we’ll get started on building your free sustainable travel profile! 

 

Take care of the land. Take care of yourself.

We’re a partner of the Look Out for ME initiative to provide guidelines, tips and resources for your next Maine adventure. Let’s all do our part to protect Maine’s natural resources for generations to come. Learn how to tread lightly and plan for the unexpected at LookOutforME.com

 

Tips for Practicing Sustainable Tourism When Traveling

  • Pack lightly and use eco-friendly travel gear: this can be as simple as carrying a reusable water bottle.
  • Shop, eat and drink local and stay at locally owned lodging services.
  • Skip hotel and laundry services; reuse towels, skip daily room cleaning.
  • Avoid overcrowded tourist spots; opt instead for similar, yet off-the-beaten-path spots and seek out sustainable and local tour operators.
