For the last three years, I have picked up the Target Earth Day bag because I like to go to Target on Sundays and they typically give these bags on the Sunday before Earth Day or in this case the actual day of celebration. Each bag is different, this year’s (front) is the smallest, like a lunch bag, but not insulated. It was the first year they offered samples and coupons.
You are supposed to get 5 cents off your order every time you use your own bags (do not have to be the Target brand), but ofter the cashiers forget so I give them a friendly reminder. If you like savings, you can find coupons on the Target site the bad thing is you have to print them and sometimes they don’t print small or use paper effectively. I wish their app offered mobile coupons. I know you can get coupons sent via text, but I don’t want that option.
If you did not have a chance to pick up a bag, use this day as a reminder to wash your reusable bags. If you’re like me they hang out at home, then the car, touch the grocery carts and then transport any variety of stuff. I wash mine on delicate and then hang dry them and figure if they fall apart, another opportunity comes along for a freebie bag. My mom gave me my first two insulated bags that I only use for frozen foods many years ago and the rest I picked up as freebies. Last year, I found myself with extras from conferences that I used them as Christmas gift bags.
If Earth Day is the day you want to make the switch to more reusable products for your lunch, Reuseit is offering $10 off $50 purchases when you use the code SAFE10APR.
If you are a new customer, consider getting the free bamboo flatware set with your first order. I ended up buying a second set so I can always keep on set in my desk drawer for when I forget utensils.
