Would You Buy a Travel Notebook Made of Cow Poo?
You know you're in Vermont when...souvenir shops include journals made of cow poo on shelves next to bottles of pure maple syrup and fridges full of Cabot cheese. We happened upon this crazy stuff yesterday at Morse Farm while taking a road trip through Montpelier, VT to observe some fall foliage at its peak.
Although seriously tempted to buy the $6 scratchpad made of cow poo, we wouldn't have wanted it for ourselves, but to use as a gift for a friend. Then remembering that none of our friends would want cow poo when they could have maple candies, we slowly backed away from the display. But that doesn't mean that it won't appeal to those travelers who revel in farm tourism, or even green travel. It totally belongs on our next list of Top 5 Travel Notebooks.
According to PooPooPaper's official website, they've been making their excrementastic products ever since 2002, and although this Vermont farm only stocks the cow poo variety, they offer paper made from the plops of elephants, horses and pandas, too. Another interesting fact is that one piece of elephant poo can make up to 10 journals, none of which turn out smelling like No. 2.
At least now we know what to get for those pesky people who always want you to bring back something for them from your travels, even if they never reciprocate.
So, if you went on a farm vacation and wanted a souvenir, would you buy a travel journal made of cow poo? Let us know in the comments.
