More visitors every year to Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks are taking an active interest in sustainable travel options. Visiting a national park can often remind visitors of important environmental concerns, and dining and lodging providers are increasingly sensitive to not only projecting a green image, but operating in a truly sustainable fashion.
Yellowstone Gate has prepared Stay Green in the Parks, a special report looking at sustainable dining, lodging and food production in and around Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks and their gateway communities.
If you’ve ever wondered where your food comes from, where your restaurant table scraps go or how your hotel room is heated, you might be surprised at what you learn in this series. From icelandic sheep to chairs made of seat belts, from organic goat cheese to bottled water, from biodynamically farmed vegetables to recycled drapes — food producers, hotel operators and chefs across the region are doing amazing and creative work to help protect and preserve the beautiful places you love while delivering authentic, nutritious and engaging dining and travel experiences.
So check out Stay Green in the Parks, and if you happen to chat with one of the people featured in our series, let them know you read about them at Yellowstone Gate.
