Have you signed up for Recyclebank yet?

Have you heard of Recyclebank? I started using this program about a year ago. It usually involves taking short quizzes, pledging to take green actions or downloading information on eco-friendly living. If you’re lucky enough to live in a neighborhood that participates in their recycling program, you can earn points for recycling, too.
For your time, you earn points, which can be redeemed for rewards including gift certificates, coupons, magazine subscriptions, etc. For example, one of the stores I shop at offers a $10 off a $50 purchase for just 100 points. Of the rewards programs I belong to, I have found that it delivers the most value for my time.
The quizzes and downloads are supported by advertisers, so of course there is a bit of greenwashing involved in some of these tasks, but I have also found that I do sometimes learn valuable things, too. And they offer many coupons for organic and natural products that can’t be found anywhere else.
Right now, Recyclebank is running a Mother’s Day promotion, where you can earn up to 70 points. That’s enough for a $2 off coupon for any Johnson’s Natural product (excluding trial sizes) or a $1 off coupon for select Stonyfield organic yogurt products (if you eat dairy products). A 15% off coupon at Abe’s Market is only 75 points.
Every day from May 3 to May 13, Recyclebank will post a new way to earn points on the Mother’s Day page. Plus, they’ll be sharing tips on how to green Mother’s Day gifts and offering a 20% discount on all Mother’s Day rewards. Be sure to check back daily (bookmark it), since each reward opportunity will only be available for 24 hours.
