This Thursday, April 22, is Earth Day, a day to pay tribute to what our planet has to offer and a time to reflect on our collective and individual efforts toward sustainability. This year marks the 51st anniversary since the first Earth Day in 1970. Given a growing awareness toward achieving zero emissions, shoppers are becoming increasingly concerned with the sustainability efforts of their go-to brands. Matt Johnson, PhD, professor at Hult International Business School and founder of Pop Neuro, told Business Insider that “consumers are willing to pay a premium for products from a sustainable brand over a non-sustainable competitor brand.” This Earth Day, we’ve compiled sales and deals from brands and retailers working to create eco-friendly products or items that may help you to reduce everyday waste in everyday life.
