Recycle Bank: Green Your Home Challenge

Recyclebank already rewards participants for adopting greener habits like recycling with discounts and deals from local and national businesses. Now, because Earth Day is this month (on Friday, in fact!),  the company is offering more than 100 prizes to people who pledge to take green actions in their homes and motivate their friends to do the same with the Green Your Home challenge.

Each week on the Green Your Home website, Recyclebank will “unlock” a different room of a house, revealing new green tips and challenges for that room.  Participants’ scores are tabulated based on the number of challenges they complete. The challenge runs until April 30. The kitchen, bedroom, yard and living room have all be unlocked thus far.

The contest’s grand prize is an $18,000 green kitchen makeover and includes LG Energy Star appliances, chairs made of recycled plastic Coca-Cola bottles and a one-year supply of Ziploc products, featuring their new bags made with 25 percent less plastic. Ten first-place winners will receive green prizes such as a solar backpack and NOOK Color e-reader.

***You will need to register to create an account, but it's very easy and totally worth it!  I've already cashed out a few high value coupons for restaurants and groceries, and it doesn't take much time at all!
