I do love the earth. It's pretty awesome. I love celebrating Earth Day, too! Not only do you get to take some time to appreciate the planet, but some really great freebies and events happen to encourage you to adopt habits that are good for the earth! Here's what's going on for Earth Day 2011:
*My absolute favorite Earth Day freebie (did it last year) - trade in any cleanser bottle (full or empty) for a FREE full sized Origins facial cleanser! Only on Earth Day (4/22). You have to fill out this form in advance, and I'd recommend going early before all the supplies run out!
*FREE coffee or tea at participating Starbucks on April 22nd when you bring in your travel mug!
*FREE coffee at Whole Foods when you bring in your travel mug, too! Check your nearby store to confirm they are participating.
*FREE eco-friendly workshops at select Home Depot locations!
*Lowe's is also celebrating Earth Day by giving out a million FREE trees on Saturday (4/23)! See if your nearby Lowe's is participating. While you're there, make a FREE birdhouse with the kids at 10AM with the Build and Grow program.
*The best way to celebrate Earth Day is in the great outdoors, right? FREE entrance to all national parks!
And don't forget - celebrate Earth Day by doing something good for the planet! Take a shorter shower, turn off your lights, turn down your heat (or AC, if you're having better weather than me!). Maybe even hug a tree!
Happy Earth Day!
