Everybody’s Green on Earth Day

April 9, 2009 1 By archshrk

Earth Day 2009 is April 22, and Amazon is launching Earth Day Savings at amazon.com/earthday, where customers can save on organic groceries, home products, CFLs and more. Additionally, learn how to go Extreme Green, Ease Into Green, or be Eco-Chic.

Amazon and ENERGY STAR will also host the Earth Day Sweepstakes. Five first-place winners will receive two ENERGY STAR-qualified powerhouses: a Toshiba laptop and a Brother multifunction printer. Fifteen second-place winners will receive the Brother printer. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Enter here by April 22, 2009. See Official Rules for details.

You can also celebrate with recycled and repurposed wood and plastic toys. Shop their large selection of eco-friendly toys from Spring Toys, Green Toys, Plan Toys, and more.

But Amazon isn’t the only ones seeing green when it comes to Earth Day. Walmart is in on it as well as a slew of “green” companies (think natural products and organic stuff). But I guess I too am in on this as I am preparing to become a LEED AP. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design and “encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices through the creation and implementation of universally understood and accepted tools and performance criteria.” In other words – adds to the hype. And since my company pays out a bonus whenever someone becomes a LEED AP (Accredited Professional) I guess I’m seeing green too.
