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. A stream of "green" accolades earned over the years for initiatives at both at the Resort and beyond includes "Leader" certification from Green Lodging Michigan, and being named 2011 Business of the Year by the Northern Michigan Environmental Action Council.

  • A Culture of Caring

    The GREEN Committee

    The Green Committee is a volunteer group of Resort employees who serve as a community role model by participating in local initiatives, promoting eco-stewardship amongst co-workers, brainstorming new ideas and implementing programs that work.

  • Community Partnerships

    Proud sponsor of The Watershed Center

    With the Watershed Center Grand Traverse Bay, we monitor and protect Acme Creek, a tributary coursing through our grounds. Through Bay Area Recycling for Charities, the Resort expanded its recycling program to include clean office paper, magazines, newspapers, card-board, non-beverage metal cans and plastic. Conference services also replaced massive paper use with an electronic system.

    The Resort also helps keep the community clean through MDOT’s Adopt-A-Highway program among other local initiatives.

  • Golf and Grounds

    Certified as a Michigan Turf-grass Environmental Steward and Audubon International Cooperative Sanctuary, the Resort was lauded by the Environmental Institute for Golf for retrofitting maintenance equipment with recycled catalytic converters.

  • Promoting Action and Awareness

    While the Resort uses energy-efficient products and systems, eco-safe cleaners and bio-degradable waste bags, it provides in-room recycling bins and a linen reuse option for guests.

  • Sunrise, Sunset

    From dawn’s first early blush seen glowing on East Grand Traverse Bay to dusk’s most vibrant hues infusing glittering Lake Michigan, striking vistas starring the sun are just as fun to shoot as vacation keepsakes as they are fine art.
