Birchwood Lodge is Turning Green – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
The Door County peninsula is a place of natural beauty and the Birchwood Lodge is dedicated to preserving this environmental gem for our visitors and residents alike. Beginning in 2008, we have begun to incorporate a series of “Green Goals”. Our efforts will focus on Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Our staff will be adopting a variety of changes which we have outlined below. We ask you to please support us in these efforts by choosing the Birchwood Lodge as your Door County home away from home.

And please, if you have suggestions that will further our Green Goals let us know.
- Green Goals we have already incorporated at the Birchwood Lodge:
- All the chemicals used in our facility are graded as environmentally friendly
- All replacement carpeting will be carpet produced from recycled materials
- As light-bulbs throughout the lodge need to be replaced, the replacement bulbs will be environmentally friendly fluorescent
- We use both sides of the 8.5″ x 11″ copy paper for internal office use
- We recycle paper, plastic, glass and aluminum cans
- We use environmentally friendly ice melting material outdoors
- We encourage our guests to hang their towels to dry for reuse in their showers
- We are annual contributors to the Door County Green Fund
