Thinkstock125725869_SSBLOG_Shopping_Earth-Day2012Earth Day is Sunday, and in between cleaning up your local park and celebrating our fabulous planet, maybe you’ll take a little time to do some planet-friendly shopping. Discounts are sprouting up like springtime flowers, so take advantage! Some worth checking out:

On Groupon.com, click over to “View Earth Day Deals.” My local temptations included designer reusable bags, home-energy-saving products, a bike trip around New York city, and stays at a few eco-lodges in different countries.

Living Social also has designer reusable bags, water bottles, and eco-friendly clothing.

Visit Amazon.com for special prices on lots of green items, including energy savers and eco-friendly baby items, as well as Earth Day themed books. 

Grab coupons for Earth Deal promotions (including some freebies!) at RetailMeNot.com.

Also keep an eye out (or google!) for special Earth Day bargains in your area, like sales on native plants at a local nature center, for instance.

You can get official Earth Day gear at Earth Day Network; click on e-store. (No sales, but you’ll find cool stuff, and your money helps the cause.
