Hilton Head Goes Green With Sustainability Conference

This month Hilton Head Island is hosting the 2011 Ecotourism and Sustainability Tourism Conference. This is the first time the conference has been held in the southeast and we’re excited they decided to come our way!

From September 19-21, the Westin will fill up with businesses and individuals who are interested in conservation and sustainability.

As expected, the entire event will promote “green” by only serving fair trade organic coffee, using recycled paper products and equipping businesses to make sustainable changes. We as an island have already taken strides by implementing Hilton Head Island Difference, which connects companies and people who are looking to create a healthier, safer and sustainable world with projects.

For more information on the conference, check out this interview with Susan Thomas, vice president of our Visitor and Convention Bureau.
