Virginia Green is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s campaign to promote environmentally-friendly practices in all aspects of Virginia’s tourism industry. Virginia Green has established "core activities" specific to each sector of tourism, and these practices are considered the required minimum for participation in the program. However, Virginia Green encourages its participants to reduce their environmental impacts in all aspects of their operations, and this profile provides a full list of all their “green” activities. These are the activities that guests / customers can expect to find when they visit this facility.
The Wintergreen Retreat is a vacation rental home within the Wintergreen Resort in Virginia, set among the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
Our family enjoys the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and we try to do our part in minimizing waste.
We are actively looking into cork recycling at our property. We also enjoy promoting the purchase of locally grown products and try to incorporate local artwork as much as possible.
