Today marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, which means it’s time to get your green on. But there’s no reason you can’t save some money while you save the world. Here are a few giveaways going on thanks to Earth Day:
Disney Hats – Visit any Disney store today with six empty bottles or cans and you can get a free Disney “youth baseball cap.” Plus, you’ll finally have an excuse to get those darn bottles out of the house…
National Parks – Not only is it Earth Day, but we are also in the middle of National Parks week, so entrance fees are waived at all parks around the country. Also, today is Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day so if your office is swamped with children, maybe you should suggest they all take a field trip to a state park and leave you in peace.
Free Milkshakes – In honor of Earth Day, Evos restaurants, an environmentally conscious chain, are giving away free organic milkshakes.
Hanes T-Shirts – Any customer who buys three items today through May 1 at Hanes will get a free tree planted in their name… and a free Earth Day T-shirt. Because trees are great and all, but come on, we know Americans live for free T-shirts.
BBC Planet Earth – From now through April 26, you can download the first episode of the BBC’s landmark series, Planet Earth, for free on iTunes. Although, this is kind of a double-edged sword: Once you watch the first episode, you’ll just want to buy the rest of them. But hey, free is free.
Other stores like Walgreens and Amazon are offering discounts on green-related products. For more giveaways, check out this list from ABC News.
