I like Earth Day. It’s one of those holidays that always sneaks up on me because I always forget that it has a set day, even though it’s the same day every year. But then I get excited because there aren’t gifts I have to run out and buy. I just have to remember to keep recycling and keep using my travel mug and take care of the earth.
Honestly, I celebrate Earth Day every day. But there are stores that celebrate it each April with sales and freebies in honor of Earth Day. Some stores have an Earth Day event that happens on the actual day (April 22 every year, by the way) and others have Earth month celebrations and giveaways happening during the entire month of April.
To make it easier, I noted the dates of all the promos below. If you see any that we’ve missed, be sure to comment below so we can get them added.
Earth Day is just one of the fun National Days that restaurants and shops celebrate annually. Check out our list of the Top 20+ National Days For Freebies And Deals to make sure you don’t miss any fun days this year.
