Green Inns

The Indiana Bed and Breakfast “Proud to be Green” is a “green” self-certification program to recognize member inns who are making a commitment to be good environmental stewards.

Inns participating in the “Proud to be Green Program” are making a conscious effort to decrease their carbon footprint and operate their businesses in a socially responsible manner.

Participating inns realize that being environmental and socially responsible, is the right thing to do, good for the environment and good for their community. Our members seek to advance their environmental goals and achievements.

Under this program Bed and Breakfasts are awarded up to four Green Leaves and one additional green plus symbol (+) indicates the innkeeper will maintain records of utility usage to monitor changes in their operations to help reduce usage. Four green leaves and a green A+ represent the highest level of green achievement. To view levels of achievement click here.
