On the eve of the 42nd anniversary of Earth Day Sears Holding Corp.’s is offering some big discounts on its green products. Sears is doing a range of different things for Earth Day from recycling old cell phones and computers to offering great deals on articles like efficient ENERGY STAR-qualified appliances.
“Sears is one of the nation’s largest broadline retailers, and with more than 2,200 Sears and Kmart store locations, we are always looking for ways to reduce our environmental footprint,” said Paul Campbell, director of environmental sustainability. “We are excited to improve on this commitment and ultimately echo our tagline, Sustainable Solutions from Our Home to Yours.”
Earth Day is an opportunity for Sears to share what it has been doing for the environment over the past year. Sears is reducing its footprint and helping its customers to do the same.
Kmart stores will give you a gift card when you trade in small electronics this Earth Day weekend and you can earn a $5 Sears award card when you bring in your old batteries to any Sears Auto Center.
Sears is also hosting contests to encourage more responsible consumer behavior. Three people will win Sears gift cards ranging in value from $50 to $400 simply for bringing reusable bags into the store.
Sears was awarded the 2012 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR program’s highest honor – the ENERGY STAR Corporate Commitment Award. In 2011 Sears recieved an Honorable Mention for the EPA’s WasteWise Very Large Business Partner of the Year Award.
