Recycle to celebrate Earth Day

Earth Day is April 22, so here are some ways to recycle AND help your wallet at the same time.

Staples accepts empty ink cartridges in exchange for giving you a $2 credit. Any brand is accepted, with a limit of 10 per month. You must be a rewards member to receive the credit. If you're not, you can sign up FREE in store.

Starbucks offers a 10c discount to customers who use re-usable mugs at their visit. If you're dining in, you can request a ceramic mug be used at no extra charge.

Dixon Golf offers 50c for every golf ball of any brand, and $1 for their own brand when recycled at one of their participating store locations.

CVS' GreenBag Tag initiative offers a bonus each time a customer brings their own bag or refuses plastic bags. Earn $1 in Extra Bucks for every 4 scans.

Best Buy accepts old video games, musical instruments and electronics in exchange for gift cards. You can ship items to a trade in center (get a pre-paid shipping label) or take them to your local store.

MAC cosmetics will give customers a FREE lipstick when they return 6 packaging containers to one of their counters.

Costco has a trade in program which accepts laptops, cell phones, cameras, MP3 players, Blu-Ray discs, games and more, in exchange for a gift card.

Many stores offer cents off when you use your own bags: Super Fresh, Super Giant, Target
