*Update: Bumping this up today since it’s Earth Day today & there are a number of freebies you can take advantage of!
Earth Day is coming up this weekend on Sunday April 22nd & a number of businesses are offering special deals, discounts & freebies to celebrate this day. I hear it’s going to be a great weather weekend (at least here in the NW), so it would be a fantastic time to be outside with your family & use any opportunities to teach your kids about reusing, repurposing & protecting the environment.
