E-M:/ Environmental Sustainability and Michigan tourism



Greetings!  I'm forwarding a description of an upcoming Trends in Outdoor Tourism conference co-hosted by Michigan State University.  I'm wondering whether there exists a resource that can direct folks to outdoor tourism establishments in Michigan that are environmentally sustainable.  For example are there cottages, hotels, restaurants that have good established records regarding recycling, waste disposal, organic foods and the like?  Is there a book, magazine, or website that provides such information?  I would think that such establishments would be able to generate some funds that not only provide livelihoods and recreational enjoyment but protect Michigan's environment.
