Five Free Ways to Celebrate Earth Day

Posted on 04/14/2010

Earth Day is April 22. It’s the 40th anniversary of this holiday that was established to promote green living. There are lots of ways to celebrate—including these five free ways!

Free Starbucks Coffee - Trade in your paper coffee cup for a reusable one on Thursday, April 15. Bring in a travel mug to your local Starbucks and they’ll fill it with brewed coffee for free. The goal is to save trees by getting people to switch from paper cups to reusable mugs.

Free Eco Totes - Join in on the iVillage Earth Day Photo Contest and you’ll get a free special-edition eco tote, a $10 retail value. You could also win some other green prizes like an eco-vacation to St. Thomas, a Flip HD Camera, a personalized water bottle or a CafePress gift certificate. Just pick a photo that inspires green living, write a caption and hope for votes. You can also score a free reusable tote from Target when you make any purchase on April 18. They’re giving away 1.5 million bags made from recycled plastic bottles.

Free Hanes Earth Day T-Shirt - Buy three Hanes products by May 15 and they’ll help you celebrate Earth Day by sending you a free t-shirt. The Arbor Day Foundation will also plant a tree for you. Just make your purchase, fill out a short claim form, and submit it along with original UPC codes and register receipts.

Plant Free Flowers - To promote solar power, HelioPower is handing out free flowers. Just give them your details and they’ll mail you an Earth Day bookmark embedded with a handful of annual and perennial wildflowers that you can plant pretty much anywhere.

Free Recycled Hat - Keep trash out of our waterways and teach kids about recycling by bringing in six empty plastic bottles or soda cans to your local Disney Store on Earth Day. In exchange for your trash, the store will give you a free Friends for Change and Disney Store youth baseball cap made from 100% recycled materials.
