Here at The Ridgeline Hotel-Estes Park, we take sustainability seriously. Our award-winning GreenPath® program helps ensure we carefully manage our environmental impact and positively contribute to the communities we serve. And in celebration of Earth Month this year, we’re introducing “Seeds for Sustainability,” replacing our traditional disposable cardboard coasters and beverage napkins with eco-friendly, plantable seed coasters for you to take home, plant, and enjoy.
The coasters are embedded with pollinator wildflowers. When they grow, they attract bees and other insects that collect and distribute pollen necessary for many plants to grow – including fruits and vegetables. One out of every three bites of food you eat exists because of the efforts of pollinators.
The wildflowers are native to North America and include Black-Eyed Susan, Corn Poppy, Spurred Snapdragon, Sweet Alyssum, English Daisy, and Catchfly seeds. (Fun Fact: Hops, the essential ingredient to brewing beer, and wind-pollinated plants!)

NOTE: Seed coasters are available while supplies last.
