A Round-Up of Earth Day Freebies
Today (Friday April 22) is Earth Day and in celebration, a series of companies, and even your government, is giving things away for free. Here are a few examples of what you can get for free today:
Starbucks: If you bring a reusable cup into any Starbucks today, you can get a free cup of coffee. Yup, that’s right, a free cup of coffee, up to 31 ounces.
Disney Stores: Bring five plastic bags into your nearest Disney Store today and receive a free Disney reusable bag.
Lowe’s: Get a free tree. That’s right, Lowe’s is giving away one million free trees in honor of Earth Day. But take note that this give-away is scheduled for the day-after Earth Day– on Saturday.
Now some might argue that these giveaways are in opposition to the ideal of Earth Day. Commercialism and consumerism are enemies of the environment, and therefore celebrating Earth Day by consuming more products is to miss the point. If you fall into this category, here is a free offer that is perfect for you:
National Parks: For the entirety of National Park Week (April 16-24), visitors to all 394 National Parks in the United States can enter any park for free!
