Green Practices

Blanketing 900 acres of a region blessed with natural attributes, Grand Traverse Resort and Spa holds deep roots as an environmental partner while achieving new heights in eco-hospitality.

In 2010, the Resort introduced an Environmental Management System minimize environmental impacts on our property. Led by the Green Committee—a volunteer group of Resort employees committed to eco-stewardship—the Resort has implemented dozens of programs to protect and preserve the surrounding environment. The following items have been put in place for resource conservation during the last decade and continue to be a part of standard operating procedures.

The Green Committee

This volunteer group of Resort employees is tasked with the planning, organization, and execution of green initiatives across the property. Each year, the Green Committee also participates in Adopt a Highway (US 31), Adopt a Stream (Acme Creek), and Adopt a Beach (Bayside Park and Resort beaches). Furthermore, the Green Committee hosts a weeklong celebration leading up to Earth Day and sponsors a recycled art contest in November in honor of America Recycles Day.
