Earth Day is this Saturday, April 22. In honor of this day meant to celebrate our planet and how excellent it is, you should get some freebies. No, really. Here are five deals you can’t pass up this Earth Day, from light bulbs to organic veggies.
1. IKEA’s “Sustainable Living Your Way” Event
On Earth Day from 9: 30 am to 6 pm, furniture giant IKEA is hosting an event called “Sustainable Living Your Way.” The day will be packed with promos and discounts, and if you’re one of the first 500 IKEA Family members to get to the store, you can score a free two pack of RYET 400-lumen LED light bulbs. There will also be free coffee, including specialty drinks, for all IKEA Family members.
2. Whole Foods Organic Food Sale
Whole Foods is hosting a one-day sale on all organic produce for Earth Day. You can get $5 any purchase of organic produce of $25 or more. This is a great deal, especially for more expensive organic items like berries and delicate vegetables.
3. Target Car Seat Trade-In
Target stores nationwide are hosting a car seat trade-in starting on April 22. You can bring your old one to any Target through April 30 and get a coupon for 20 percent off a new car seat (good through May 31). Target will recycle your old one, you get a good deal, everyone wins!
4. Amazon Warehouse Deals
Get 20 percent off of Amazon Warehouse Deals merchandise through Earth Day. If you haven’t heard of them, Warehouse Deals are bargain-priced items that have been returned, warehouse-damaged, used or refurbished. This could be a great deal if you don’t mind a little scratch on lightly used products.Getty Images | Matt Cardy
