Going Green

The Cable Area is focusing on green practices and environmentally friendly activities and suggestions. We have a variety of member businesses that are certified with the state of Wisconsin under the Wisconsin Travel Green program.

WI Travel Green Program

In the spirit of Wisconsin’s deep heritage of environmental stewardship, the Department of Tourism initiated Travel Green Wisconsin in 2006 to promote smart, environmentally friendly business practices. The program is the first state-sponsored sustainable travel green certification program in the nation and has become a model for sustainable travel efforts both nationally and internationally.

Travel Green Wisconsin is a voluntary, affordable program that reviews, certifies and recognizes tourism businesses that have made a commitment to continuously improve their operations in order to reduce their environmental impact.

Green Getaways

The Cable Area is a recreational paradise that offers many natural outdoor activities, environmental and educational workshops and focuses on a healthy and sustainable way of having fun and living.
