Earth Day Giveaways: Get Ready for Summer 4.22.11
You may not even have the snow melted out of your driveway yet, but I’m sure you’ve got summer on your mind. For many families, summer camps are being booked this month. Summer road trips and family reunions are starting to pop into the calendar. And surely, one day in the very near future, the Earth will turn and the weather will warm up.
Perhaps because of finances this summer it’s not the whole-Earth-worship trip to Bali you’d hoped for, but a good-ole American road trip. If you’ve got driving on your mind, you’ll need gas and fuel saving tips. See our post on Gas Saving Tips, which includes very pertinent links to the discounted gas cards offered on Plastic Jungle.
And in case you’re looking to ditch your automobile altogether, sell your gas card (or any other gift card with a minimum balance) on Plastic Jungle today.

Enjoy a great spring day today, and even if you’re a stalwart Earth fan, take the time to put litter in its place today, or walk or bike instead of driving, or put a little more effort into using re-usable coffee cups or mugs, re-usable shopping bags, or think twice about what you need to print.
