Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22. Since the 1970's Earth Day has inspired awareness and appreciation for the environment. In some areas, the entire month of April or the week surrounding Earth Day are celebrated in schools and communities.
Below are all the Earth Day promotions I was able to verify. If you know of others, please leave a comment.
Paperback Swap - Not actually an Earth Day promotion, but Paperback Swap is a great way to save money on books and help the environment. You can trade books with other people. (Ongoing)
National Parks - Free entry this weekend to national parks across the country. (April 21-29, 2012)
Target - Free reusable shopping bag with any purchase. (April 22, 2012)
Disney Store - Free reusable shopping bag when you bring five plastic bags to recycle. (April 22, 2012)
Disney Movies - Disney continues their annual tradition of releasing a Disney nature film the weekend closest to Earth Day. If you Chimpanzee between now and April 26, 2012, Disneynature will contribute $0.20 per ticket to the Jane Goodall Institute for the Disneynature Tchimpounga Nature Reserve Project (minimum $100,000). They will also make a $1 donation for every purchase of a chimpanzee plush toys between now and May 13, 2012.

Grocery Stores - Many local grocery stores will be giving away reusable bags. There are too many chains for me to list them all, but check your Sunday ad to see if you're store is running a promotion.
