Greener Program Expands Across Nebraska


LINCOLN, NEB (April 22, 2011)—The Greener Byways of Nebraska program is expanding. As of today, the program will be known as Greener Nebraska and will be open to all businesses across the state.


Developed in 2010 with resources from a National Scenic Byways grant, the Nebraska Department of Economic Development’s Travel and Tourism Division developed the initial program to help tourism-related businesses along Nebraska’s nine Scenic Byways become more environmentally friendly.


Going statewide enables the program to reach out to a larger audience. Not only will this open new opportunities for membership, but it will help to spread the word about all the wonderful things businesses are doing to protect the environment. Businesses that go green help keep Nebraska beautiful while attracting tourists who place strong importance on eco-friendly travel.


The program’s website——includes a variety of information on ways your business can incorporate green practices and offers a free certification program. In addition to the website, media resources have been developed for you to promote your business’s certification and involvement in the program. You can find the materials at


Please consider becoming part of Greener Nebraska and begin reaping the rewards of your efforts to protect and preserve the environment.
