You don’t have to wait until Earth Day — which falls on Sunday, April 22 — to snag a freebie or discount.

Some of the following giveaways, coupons and coupon codes, and other discounts are available now. And they will appeal not just to environmentally conscientious folks but also to shoppers interested in items ranging from groceries to discount luggage and Ikea furniture.

You can also effectively get paid to recycle stuff you no longer want or need.

Here are 10 of the best Earth Day specials we’ve seen:

1. Amazon Warehouse

This division of Amazon is already celebrating Earth Week by offering an extra 20 percent off select items in categories ranging from kitchen appliances to luggage and travel gear.

Amazon Warehouse is where Amazon sells used goods. Its website explains:

“All items are inspected and graded using Amazon’s rigorous 20-point quality inspection process and sold at a discount. Purchases are Prime-eligible and backed by Amazon’s 30-day return policy and award-winning customer service.”

2. BurgerFi

Buy any burger on Sunday and BurgerFi will toss in a free plantable coaster while supplies last. The coasters contain lettuce and tomato seeds.

3. Ibotta

Ibotta is a free app that offers cash rebates. It offers cash back on purchases from all kinds of places.

Right now, Ibotta is also offering cash back on environmentally safe brands like Seventh Generation, Aveeno and Energizer Recharge. Once you’ve registered for an account and downloaded the app, open the app to view all the cash-back offers that are currently available to you.

4. Ikea

The European home furnishings retailer is offering a coupon for $25 off a purchase of $150 or more. It’s valid in stores on Saturday and Sunday — which is also when the retailer is hosting a Make Room for Nature Event involving workshops and giveaways.

5. Mason Jar Lifestyle

Now through Sunday, Mason Jar Lifestyle is offering 22 percent off everything. Use coupon code EARTH at checkout.

This online retailer specializes in all things Mason jar.

6. Natural Grocers

This grocery store chain will host an Earth Day sale from Friday through Sunday. Products by various environmentally friendly brands will be discounted, and customers will receive a free reusable shopping bag with purchase.

Also during the three-day sale, members of Natural Grocers’ loyalty program will receive double rewards points on purchases and have the chance to win a $500 gift card.

7. National Park Service

If you would rather commune with nature than shop deals this weekend, the Park Service has you covered: Admission to the 117 National Park Service sites that charge entrance fees will be free on Saturday. (It’s free year-round at the other 300 sites.)

This is one of only four days on which the Park Service will waive all admission fees in 2018. And it’s an especially good deal now that admission to those 117 sites is about to rise.

8. Staples

First off, know that you can join the Staples Rewards loyalty program for free. There is ample reason to join, as we detail in “13 Stores That Offer Cash Back or Rewards on Every Purchase.”

Now, here’s another reason to join: Members can earn a coupon for $10 off a $30 purchase — a savings of up to 33 percent — by recycling old electronics. All you have to do is take your unwanted electronics to a Staples store from Sunday through April 28.

9. Target

Spend $20 on natural beauty or personal care products — including brands like Burt’s Bees and Dr. Bronner’s — and Target will give you a free $5 gift card. This offer is available online only.

Target is also bringing back its car seat trade-in event, which will run from Earth Day through May 5 this year. Basically, if you bring an unwanted car seat to a Target store during that time period, you will receive a coupon for 20 percent off a new one of the following:

  • Car seat
  • Booster seat
  • Car seat base
  • Travel system
  • Stroller

The coupon is good in stores and online.

Even if neither of these deals interests you, note for future reference that Target is also among a handful of retailers that offer discounts year-round for bringing reusable shopping bags.

10. Wegmans Food Markets

As part of its Food You Feel Good About event — which is from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday — Wegmans is bringing back its free reusable bag exchange. If you bring your plastic bags to a store, you will get a coupon for a free Wegmans reusable bag.
