3 easy ways to celebrate Earth Day

Starbucks is offering a free brewed coffee or tea if you bring in a reusable mug today.

Office Depot Pen Recycling

This week, bring in 10 used writing instruments for recycling to Office Depot and receive a coupon toward a Sharpie, EXPO, or Paper Mate product.

Creative Pitch Paper Donation (Chicago)

This local organization collects art supplies and donates them to art teachers in need. They are currently in need of paper donations. Everything 8.5″ x 11″ and up is welcome (WHITE / MATTE paper is preferred). They have a drop-off location in the Loop. See the Creative Pitch website for contact info.

These are a few easy ways to get started, but why stop there? Celebrate Earth Day everyday by consciously making an effort to reduce, reuse and recycle in your business and personal life.
