I love Earth Day! When I was a teacher it was always one of my favorite units to teach.
And here is a double win – – a chance to help save the planet, one freebie at a time 🙂
Earth Day is 4/22/12, and it’s a fab way to learn about recycling, reususing, renewing, and sustainability. Several companies have jumped on board to help promote awareness, not only to educate their customers, but also, to help our Mother Earth.
Check out the freebies lined up so far:
Verde – FREE Verde Energy Audit App for iPad (org. $4.99) until Earth Day [download here]. The application walks you through the process of listing your personal electrical usage, and together with your local KWh cost found on your electricity bill, Verde will calculate your total energy consumption, and make suggestions on how you can make changes to save money, and save energy!

Target – FREE reusable totes [these always go so fast] on 4/22
