Earth Day is celebrated across the globe on April 22. It marks the anniversary of the modern environmental movement, which was born in 1970.

In addition to celebrating the planet by making environmentally friendly choices, consumers can also score discounts on everything from toilet paper to home appliances and even some awesome freebies on Earth Day. Check out these seven Earth Day deals:
