Florida has never really had an environmentally-focused governor, but the state’s newly-elected “Green Governor” is at it again. Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), who ran on a clean water and environment platform during the 2018 midterm elections, is giving his official tourism agency a little “eco-friendly” boost.

According to DeSantis’ executive office, VISIT FLORIDA has added a “travel hub” to its website that offers Floridians and visitors “tips and resources for green, sustainable travel throughout the state.”

In addition to those ‘green’ travel suggestions, website visitors “can find information about environmentally friendly attractions, activities, dining, transportation, and lodging – and how to practice voluntourism while in Florida.”

 “Since taking office, I have made the protection of our environment a top priority,” said Governor DeSantis. “In their continued effort to keep our state at the forefront of travelers’ minds, VISIT FLORIDA’s new eco-travel hub will put our beautiful environment on display and enable millions of visitors to take advantage of Florida’s sustainable travel options. More eco-friendly travel to our state will help our economy continue to grow while keeping taxes low for Floridians.”
