Thank you for attending our session at ShiftCon 2016. Amy, Orleatha, and myself hope you were able to walk away with a few tips to live a greener lifestyle without breaking the bank.

This is an example of what most CVB’s offer to assist you in planning your travels and finding fresh, local products to maintain your healthy lifestyle on the road.
