Target is looking to make your cleaning efforts a bit easier this September by offering to take old car seats off your hands. In exchange for the used seats, the company will give you a 20 percent discount on a new seat of your choice in honor of National Baby Safety Month.
The trade-in program, which will take place in Target stores from September 10 to 23, 2017, is in partnership with TerraCycle — a company that recycles hard-to-recycle waste — which will work to upcycle the old car seats into new products. Through the initiative, Target believes it will "keep more than 700,000 pounds of car seat materials out of landfills."
"In honor of Earth Month, we wanted to make it easy for guests to do something positive for the planet and their communities," Target's chief sustainability officer, Jennifer Silberman, said back in April 2017 before the program's first go-round. "We love this opportunity to give families an environmentally friendly way to dispose of unwanted car seats and get the new ones they need . . . " Earlier this year, 80,000 car seats were recycled in honor of Earth Day.
If you're excited about this program and are planning to take full advantage of the coupon that comes with the trade-in, check out Target's lineup of car seats available to choose from while you wait for September 10 to roll around (your coupon will only be valid until Oct. 7, 2017, so be ready!).
