With Earth Day coming up on April 22, Target is preparing to kick off its Earth Month celebration with a reusable bag giveaway, the launch of a new online boutique for green products and a sweepstakes contest with eco-friendly prizes.
The grand prize of Target’s Earth Month sweepstakes contest is a “Refresh Your Nest” home makeover, worth $50,000. The winner will receive a visit from Target’s home style expert and LEED-accredited designer Sabrina Soto, who will re-decorate using earth-friendly products.
Other sweepstakes prizes include $5,000 worth of energy-efficient lighting and appliances, eco-vacations including travel and hotel accommodations, the opportunity to design your own line of eco-friendly cleaning products, and giveaways of other green products.
Shoppers can enter the contest at Target’s new online green boutique, www.Target.com/Eco. Featuring eco-friendly Target products, the site also offers sustainability tips from Sabrina Soto and coupons to use at local Target stores.
On April 17, Target will distribute 1 million reusable bags. Target offers a 5 cent per-bag discount year round to shoppers who bring their own reusable bags to the store.
