Philosophy:
Buying local is one of the fundamental tenets of ecotourism and is combined with respect for the environment and the local culture. In working with travelers coming to Dane County or going to other destinations, Green Concierge Travel finds the best travel experience using local vendors with the intent of supporting the local economy. Ecotravel also includes giving back to the community. Green Concierge Travel offers two different tours highlighting different aspects of the Dane County community. One tour, the Urban Food Sampler, makes the connection between farmers, the farmers' market, the Willy Street Coop and local restaurateurs serving locally grown inspired menus. The other tour highlights the indigenous heritage of the area and the eye opening effigy mounds that remain in our landscape.
History:
Wanting to bring her values to the travel industry, Liz Wessel launched Green Concierge Travel in September 2006. The company focuses on exploring destinations in North America and offering tours that explore the connections between travelers, communities, and the natural assets of destinations. Together with clients, Green Concierge Travel supports local and environmentally friendly businesses and services. Liz wanted to create a business connecting the growing number of green travelers with emerging green travel companies including tour operators, inns, restaurants and services like green cleaning. The company is the product of Liz's passion for both the environment and travel, as well as a long term interest in green businesses. Green Concierge Travel is an approved member of Coop America's Business Network which looks at member's operations.
