It’s true: You can now get a camo-colored Texas license plate
Oh you're my favorite color, camouflage.
Hiding — camoflauged, you might say — in my inbox yesterday was this gem I didn't get to until today: That Texas license plates now come in green camo color.
Yes, it's true.
According to a press release, the company selling the license plates, myplates.com, will donate 10% of the camo plate sales to a non-profit called Carry the Load, which honors the military on Memorial Day. To honor Carry the Load further, My Plates will donate $10 from every plate sold -- not just camo ones -- on Memorial Day, May 27.
And really, camo was one of the few colors left that My Plates hadn't turned into a license plate. (Oh but wait: Pink camo plates will be available in June.) My Plates also offers Lone Star themed plates, plus ones honoring universities, fraternities and sororities, charities, and even high schools. You'll find the camo plates under My Plates' "sports/outdoors" category.
The green camo plates went on sale Wednesday.
Cue the song: Camouflage! Camouflage! Camouflaaaaaage, oh you're my favorite color, camouflage.
[UPDATE: Pink camo is available, as of June 5.]
