As if we needed another reason to love them, Target is once again teaming up with TerraCycle in honor of National Baby Safety Month to help recycle old car seats while giving us a sweet discount on a new one.

  • The program, which is a repeat of the popular car seat recycling program they tried last spring, runs from September 10 through September 23.

  • To get a 20 percent off coupon toward the purchase of a new car seat, booster seat, or travel system, just bring your used car seat to most Targets.

    If you just can't decide which fresh new car seat you want that day (or if your toddler has a meltdown because they're out of blue seats), you have until October 7 to redeem your 20 percent off coupon in store or online.

  • Recycle that Cheerio-crusted car seat the baby is outgrowing and buy a new one that doesn't smell like curdled milk at a great price.

    Then grab yourself a PSL with some of the savings.

    "After collecting more than a million pounds of car seat material to be recycled from the program in April, we're excited to be bringing this amazing program back," said Michelle Wlazlo, senior vice president of apparel and accessories at Target, in a press release. "We're always looking for ways to make the lives of our guests easier and we're proud to be able to help them reduce household clutter in a responsible and environmentally friendly way."
