Every year, a number of companies offer freebies, discounts and activities to help bring awareness to Earth Day, which takes place on Wednesday, April 22. Here is a list of companies with free offers this year.
There may be other companies announcing additional offers in the next couple days. If so, I'll be sure to add them to this list. Please share any others you find.

American Eagle: In honor of Earth Day, customers can bring their old denim into any of American Eagle Outfitters’ 823 stores across the United States and Canada, and receive a 20% discount on a new pair of jeans.

Any collected unwearable denim will be shredded and recycled into UltraTouch™ Denim Insulation and other building materials for use in Make It Right’s affordable homes around the country.
