Target is jumping into the Earth Day fray with its own eco-freebie: get a cute messenger-style tote bag free with any purchase on April 17. Here's a fun fact I learned: "When you use a reusable bag ten times, you’ll keep 25 plastic bags out of landfills." I've had my reusable totes for years now and have probably kept hundreds of plastic bags from ever being born. Take that, unnecessary plastic!
They're giving away 1 million of these bags (limit 1 per person), but before you send each member of your family to a different checkout line with one item each, please think carefully about whether you really NEED one. It's green to get a reusable tote, but it's even more green to use what you have until it's no longer good.
