Wegmans celebrates Earth Day with freebies

Stop by any Wegmans this Earth Day and you'll be showered with freebies and coupons. Wegmans


Departments throughout the grocery store will offer samples of organic produce and organic Wegmans brand products, as well as money-saving coupons.


While you're noshing an organic roast beef on ciabatta sandwich, some cedar-plank E.U. Certified Organic salmon from Ireland and chasing both with a freshly-made organic strawberry-orange-banana smoothie, the kids can pick up farm-themed tattoos, try an organic peanut butter and jelly sandwich and get a free organic juice box.


Parents can also grab up to $10 in coupons for things such as eco-friendly cooking pans, and bring in plastic bags for recycling to receive a free Wegmans reusable bag.


Some stores will have additional activities, such as story times and seedling plantings.


The Earth Day Organic Festival will take place Saturday April 20 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
