Here is a list of stores that will reward you for recycling not just on Earth Day but every day. Thank you to The Today Show for compiling this list:

Amazon Trade-In – Turn in your used items for an Amazon Gift Card, even if you bought them at other retailers. Trade in your cellphones, tablets, laptops, video games or consoles and books.

H&M – Take old clothing and home items, like bedding or towels, to the nearest H&M location and drop it in one of their in-store collection boxes for a sweet coupon that will save you 15% off a future purchase.

Madewell – Bring in that old pair of jeans sitting in your closet into any Madewell store and receive $20 off a new pair. You’ll be proud you did — Blue Jeans Go Green turns that old denim into housing insulation for communities around the country.

 The North Face – It might not be a huge difference, but we’ll take anything we can get when it comes to discounts on a cozy North Face jacket. If you’ve got old clothes and shoes to get rid of, bring them to any North Face retail or outlet store for $10 off your next purchase if it’s $100 or more.

 Levi’s – You don’t even have to go to a store to reap these benefits. Simply pack up old jeans or other clothing items and bring them to your nearest post office using this ever-so-convenient pre-paid shipping label. Fact: these clothes will be headed to a nearby Goodwill. In return, Levi’s will reward you with 20% off a future item with a $5 donation in Levi Strauss’ name to Goodwill.

 Kiehl’s – If you simply cannot get enough of Kiel’s products (we can’t either), then make it a habit of bringing every empty, full-size bottle into the store to rack up stamps on a rewards card. When you earn 10 stamps, you’ll be eligible to redeem one free travel-sized product.

MAC – If you love MAC products (who doesn’t?) and have at least six packaging containers lying around, take them to the closest counter immediately to trade them in for a free lipstick!

Lush – If you’re an avid Lush fan and have accumulated five or more plastic pots that had originally housed a liquid product, bring them to your local Lush retailer and they’ll reward you with a free mask.
