Earth Day Freebies and Deals in 2011

Go green - save moneyIn the midst of the Easter/Passover holiday season, it’s easy to forget about Earth Day, which falls this year on Friday, April 22.  But the exciting Earth Day freebies and deals offered make this a holiday to be remembered not only by environmentally responsible people, but fiscally responsible people as well.  I hope that by enjoying these eco-friendly Earth Day freebies you’ll be able to impact the environment and your wallet.

  • The Disney Store is giving out one free reusable bag for every person who brings in 5 plastic shopping bags on Earth Day.
  • Origins is once again providing free full-sized facial cleansers to anyone who brings in an empty skincare bottle from any other brand on April 22.  You can choose between Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash or A Perfect World Antioxidant Cleanser with White Tea.  Alternatively, if you don’t have an empty bottle, get a free full-sized cleanser with a $30 purchase.  And, while you’re there, make sure to ask for the free mini facial.
  • As mentioned on my Facebook page, Starbucks is offering free coffee or tea to anyone who brings in a reusable mug on April 22.
  • Get a free tree from Lowe’s on Saturday, April 23, when the chain is partnering with American Forests to distribute 1 million tree saplings.  In addition to the one million tree giveaway, Lowe’s will host a special Earth Day Build and Grow clinic at 10 am. on April 23. Every Lowe’s store nationwide will offer the Build and Grow clinic, which guides children through building a wooden birdhouse to take home.
  • Anyone who purchases ‘green ‘ products at Drugstore.com until April 22 can enjoy up to 60% savings.
  • Kmart is having sales on energy-efficient appliances (and some other appliances as well) on April 22.

All of the nation’s 394 national parks have free admission through April 24.

Happy holidays!
