Earth Day has arrived. At this point, we should probably be celebrating it every day and working constantly to stop the damage being done to the planet, but the official day lands on Monday, April 22. 

There are innumerable ways you could celebrate, including sending letters to representatives and trying to understand the magnitude of the climate crisis. While these are baby steps toward dealing with the loads of problems the planet faces, many restaurants and companies are offering discounts and promotions to help you celebrate Earth Day. Many of the promotions are in hopes of helping you make positive changes that can help create habits to create more sustainable lifestyles. Also, some are just deals because... well... everyone loves a deal.

Here are the best deals you'll find for Earth Day.

Other Earth Day Promotions

Lyft Bikeshare Program
The deal: Bikeshare programs that are a part of Lyft's system are offering free bike rides for anyone who uses the code "EARTHDAY19." That includes Citi Bike in New York, Divvy in Chicago, Capital Bikeshare in Washington, DC, Nice Ride in Minneapolis, Biketown in Portland, and CoGo in Columbus.
When: April 22

Orbitz 
The deal: The travel booking site is offering a 10% discount if your trip only visits "green-minded cities to ensure an eco-friendly hotel stay." It's basically a discount to stay at hotels that have stopped using single-use plastic straws. It's well-intended, even if getting rid of single-use plastic straws isn't going to stop glacial ice melt. (Also, getting rid of straws entirely ignores the needs of some.) To take advantage of the discount, find a hotel at this landing page and use the code "GETAWAY."
When: Through April 28

True Food Kitchen
The deal: Every time a Good Earth Kale Cobb salad is sold, True Food Kitchen will donate $1 to the Environmental Working Group (the group that publishes the Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 lists).
When: Through April 30

Via
The deal: While studies indicate that ridesharing services increase congestion, people are using them. Via wants to encourage commuters to share a car instead of going alone, a feature offered on its app. For Earth Day, it's turning off private rides and everyone has to share. But they're offering an incentive to prove it's not so bad. Riders in New York get 20% off one shared ride with the code "VIAEARTHDAY" and, in Chicago, you can get a $3 flat rate shared ride anywhere in the city. 
When: April 22

SodaStream
The deal: Get 15% off on the sparkling water maker by using the code "EARTHDAY."
When: Through April 27
