Husky Homestead is proud to be certified by Adventure Green Alaska since 2018.
Adventure Green Alaska (AGA) is currently Alaska’s only sustainable tourism certification program, and works to promote environmentally conscientious and sustainable tourism in Alaska. AGA is a voluntary certification program of the Alaska Travel Industry Association (ATIA) for sustainable tourism businesses operating in Alaska that meet standards of economic, environmental, and social sustainability. The AGA sustainable tourism certificate program encourages tourism businesses to evaluate their operations and determine whether they use-or could be using- best management practices.
What are we doing here at Husky Homestead?
- Support local businesses and communities, as well as source as many items as possible from Alaskan businesses.
- Set company-wide sustainable practices for staff and guests (recycling, purchasing post-consumer waste products, using non-toxic cleaning products, composting of dog poop)
- Use energy-efficient practices wherever possible (LED lightbulbs, coordinate pick-ups to use the least amount of vehicles thereby limiting our carbon footprint, catch rainwater for use in watering our dogs)
- Support the Denali Zero-Landfill Initiative.
Here are some easy ways for visitors to Denali to minimize trash and waste while you travel:
- Bring a reusable water bottle to refill.
- Bring or buy a reusable bag to carry your souvenirs and supplies.
- Choose groceries with minimal packaging and recycle as you pack.
- Opt for paperless tickets and receipts.
- Recycle aluminum cans, glass, and plastics #1, #2 and #5 in the our recycle bins as well as the park’s recycle bins.
- In some remote areas, recycling services are limited, so please – if you pack it in, pack it out, and always practice Leave No Trace ethics.
