According to one of the Web editors here at the Post, my list of freebies and deals for tax day proved pretty popular.
So here is another list of deals and promotions for Earth Day/week.
Again, please let me know if you hear of more and I’ll add them to the list!
UPDATE (4/22): Here are some more deals I found for Earth Day!
Publix: Customers who purchase certain types of GE Energy Smart CFL 2 pack of light bulbs can use this $1.00 off coupon and will receive a free Publix reusable bag.
And today (April 22), customers will get a seeded paper that, when planted, will grow wildflowers.
Macy’s: will offer a new fashion reusable tote for $1.95 with a $1 donation to the National Park Foundation available in-store only beginning April 15.
Also, the first 150 kids to visit the Children’s Department on Earth Day (April 22) will get the new Kid Power Activity Book from the National Park Foundation that helps teach children fun ways they can keep the Earth healthy. The book is also available online here. If you return the completed book to the National Park Foundation, you get a Kid Power Badge! Sweet!
Also, this one is for National Park Week instead of Earth Day, but it’s still good for the environment, so:
Macy’s One Good Turn charity day shopping event: Make a $5 donation at Macy’s stores or online and receive an all-day shopping pass for 20 percent off most clothing and accessories, and 10 percent off most home items. 100 percent of ticket sale proceeds will go to the National Park Foundation and local participating nonprofit organizations that protect and conserve the environment, including the Palm Beach Zoo.
Home Depot: giving away 1 million CFL lightbulbs this Sunday (April 19) in honor of Earth Day. Get yours!
Walgreens: On April 22nd, use these coupons to get 15 percent off certain store items, and 20 percent off Walgreens brand products. Also, a free reusable tote bag is given away with every purchase.
Pizza Fusion: will host five days of Earth Day celebrations from April 18 – 22, including free pizza, Honest Tea giveaways, specials, raffle drawings for Jamis bicycles, a ‘Green Home Makeover’, an expense paid trip to wine country, a Sierra Club Excursion vacation, and more.

Disney: Bring three empty plastic bottles into any Disney store and get a free gift, like a reusable tote bag.
Rack Room Shoes: will be giving away reusable shopping bags to the first 200 shoe purchasers in over 142 different locations across the country, including select stores throughout Palm Beach County.
