Earth needs a lot of TLC in order to keep it healthfully spinning — which is totally and solely our responsibility. And while our main focus on the special day should be on putting our energy towards making progressive changes in the way we treat the planet, it's also just a fun day to celebrate this great place we call home. If you find yourself out and about, you may want to take advantage of Earth Day 2017 freebies and deals, especially because a lot of them are themed after your favorite planet (which is hopefully, y'know, Earth).
And to make sure that it's a happy Earth Day, there are tons of companies that are offering freebies and deals to get us even more excited about celebrating the planet. If you're looking for some suggestions for how to celebrate Earth Day beyond doing your share of planet-saving work, you might want to consider making it out to one of these stores to take advantage of their one day only deals. Just make sure you do something like volunteer with a clean up crew or learn about a new way to reduce your carbon footprint.
