Get it, Target! In honor of Earth Day, the superstore has announced a program in which you can trade in your old car seat for a newer, discounted version. Well, all right then, Tar-jay -- sign us up. So just how do we get in on this deal?


From April 17 through April 30, all you have to do is bring in your old car seat to Target, and you'll get a 20-percent-off coupon (which is good through May 31) to buy a new one -- all while being kind to the environment at the same time.

Yep, that's right -- Target is teaming up with TerraCycle, a company that finds solutions for hard-to-recycle waste, in an effort to not only help parents make sure they've got the appropriate car seat that meets safety standards, but also to reduce the amount of those bulky car seats in landfills.

According to Fox 21 Denver, Target -- which first tested the program in September, garnering positive feedback -- expects to recycle more than 700,000 pounds of car seat materials. You'll be able to make your exchange in bins located near the front of the store or in the baby section, and a team member should be able to provide you with a coupon.

See you all at Target!
