Target gets us. They just get us! And this car seat recycling program totally proves it.
Have an old or outdated car seat taking up space in your storage room, or, in my case, blocking your path to your car in the garage? Well, good news! Target is holding a second car seat trade-in program in just a few days, starting on September 10, and going through the 23rd.
In partnership with TerraCycle, Target will recycle all car seats brought in to most of its retail locations during the program. But there's more. Not only are you saving landfill space by participating, but Target will give you a 20 percent off coupon, good for the purchase of a new car seat, including booster seats, car seat bases and travel systems. And since car seats are crazy expensive, this is definitely huge!
The coupon will be valid in stores or online until October 7.
In a press release, the mom mecca said this latest program was timed to coincide with National Baby Safety Month. "We're committed to ensuring that kids and babies have the right car seats that meet current safety standards," they said.
