Owner & Innkeeper
The Craftsman Bed & Breakfast
Pacific City, Oregon
Innkeepers Mike & Laura Rech of The Craftsman Bed and Breakfast in Pacific City, Oregon, are taking Green Travel one step farther.
They have always believed in saving the planet and making as small of an impact as they could.
Green is in, so they decided instead of quietly being green, they would promote their green practices.
They are part of the Oregon Bed & Breakfast Guild's Green Inspection Program and are listed with another Green Travel site, istaygreen.org, where they rate 3 leafs.
The Craftsman is offsetting its carbon emissions with Carbonfund.org; the country’s leading nonprofit carbon offset organization. Carbonfund.org’s CarbonFree® Partner program is a national movement of businesses and organizations that are leading the fight against global warming.
Their car is even carbon neutral! VW of America and Carbonfund.org are planting the VW Forest. They are offsetting carbon emissions by funding the reforestation of the Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley.
They want to help you be green too. You can purchase Green-e certified renewable energy certificates, Green Tags, to help offset the carbon footprint of your travel to The Craftsman B&B. Their Green Tag web page has a chart where you can look up what kind of car you drive and figure out how many Tags would offset your travel.
