Take our green habits home with you

Making strides in sustainability.

You may notice that each business has one or more turtle badges under their listing in our directory. You may also see these badges around Montezuma: in shop windows, hotel lobbies and restaurant bars.

These badges are called Ecoturtles and they are our way of distinguishing and promoting business who strive to become more sustainable and take care of our environment.

Below are the seven turtles and their significance; so you will know what green habits your are supporting when eat, sleep, or shop at these businesses.
