You’ll find Red Lion Hotels in many west coast and Pacific Northwest cities and at my recent stay at a Red Lion Columbia Center in Kennewick, WA, I was handed a complimentary bottle of water at check-in because I’d signed up to be a member of the Red Lion R&R Club.
I drank the water late that night and was about to put the bottle in the trash can when I noticed the neck tag on the bottle said “Plant Me.”
I turned the tag over and learned that it is made of handmade paper embedded with annual and perennial wildflower seeds that I can plant in my backyard.
It’s a great, simple, green and very easy-to-carry souvenir of my stay and – in honor of Earth Day – my Souvenir Sunday pick for this week.
Have you picked up – or been given – an inexpensive and impressive souvenir while out on the road?
If so, please snap a photo and send it along.
If your souvenir is featured on Souvenir Sunday, I’ll send you a fun travel-themed souvenir.
