In addition, Target will offer guests simple, sustainable solutions and more than $50 in savings on sustainable products throughout April in our stores and via a limited-time website ( The retailer also will partner with Recyclebank, an organization that promotes sustainable decisions by allowing individuals to earn rewards for actions like recycling and reducing water use.

“Earth Day is the perfect time to remind guests that a small change can make a big difference in reducing waste, saving money and driving sustainable choices in their community,” said Shawn Gensch, senior vice president, Marketing, Target. “At Target, we are pleased to do our part by making these choices easier for our guests.”

Target’s limited-time website is available through April 28 and includes access to more than 40 featured products, tips and tricks for leading a sustainable lifestyle and links to more than $50 in coupon savings.
