The Best Earth Day Deals on Tech, Ebikes, and Cleaning Supplies

Every year, Earth Day comes around to remind us how important it is to take care of our planet. But it shouldn’t be something we think about for just one day. The WIRED Gear team tests environmentally-friendly gear year-round and, thankfully, some of our favorites have been discounted to celebrate our blue marble. Only buy something if you really need it, but there are many items in here that are eco-friendly alternatives to traditional products, like reusable bags to ditch single-use plastics, and biodegradable cleaning supplies. 

Be sure to check out our Earth Day-related buying guides, including the Best Recycled Products, Best Bags Made of Recycled Materials, and Best Reusable Water Bottles. 

Special offer for Gear readers: Get a 1-year subscription to WIRED for $5 ($25 off). This includes unlimited access to WIRED.com and our print magazine (if you’d like). Subscriptions help fund the work we do every day.

If you buy something using links in our stories, we may earn a commission. This helps support our journalism. Learn more.

Household and Health Deals

Birch Organic Mattress

Mattresses go on sale all the time, but Birch makes one of our favorite beds in a box. This deal includes two free pillows. The hybrid construction and individually wrapped coils make the mattress comfortable for most sleeping positions. 

Use coupon code EarthDay to save on our favorite organic mattress for kids. This affordable hybrid mattress is made with natural materials that are better for the environment. Consider springing for the optional two-sided upgrade if your kiddos jump on the bed all the time—it’ll help extend the mattress’ life. 

This bundle is our top solution pick in our guide to the Best Sustainable Cleaning Supplies. The products smell amazing and work well. Simply dump the glass refill containers into the included bottles and mix them with water to create cleaners for counters, glass, granite, and more. Investing in a refillable system like this can save you money in the long run, but it also reduces the number of bottles you throw out. 

Marley’s Monsters Unpaper Towels

Use coupon code EARTHLOVE2022 at checkout. Paper towel alternatives aren’t always great, but these flannel sheets cling together, so you can roll them up just like you would with disposable paper versions. They’re absorbent and machine washable, and the fun prints will brighten up your kitchen while also cutting back on paper waste.

Use code PLANET to get a fourth dishcloth for free. Also recommended in our guide to sustainable cleaning supplies, these fun dishcloths are a biodegradable alternative to sponges. You can wash them in the dishwasher to keep them fresh for months. 

Use code EARTHMONTH to save 30 percent sitewide. We really like these laundry detergent pods. They smell good without being overpowering, and they’re safe for use in High Efficiency (HE) machines. The plant-based ingredients, compostable packaging, and carbon-neutral shipping are icing on the cake.

Bee’s Wrap

We feature this in our guide to the Best Reusable Products as a good alternative to plastic cling wrap. Made from organic cotton and sustainably sourced beeswax, a set of these washable, waterproof wraps can last a year—or longer with extra TLC.  

WIRED staffers swear by these silicone bags as an alternative to disposable and plastic Ziploc bags. The discount is automatically applied during checkout. The now-$70 starter kit is a good place to start, but every product Stasher makes is on sale. The reusable bags are easy to reseal and easier to clean.

Another standout reusable product, this bento box is made of plant-based materials that are both durable and lightweight. While great for lunches, these are also handy to have around for prepping meals and storing leftovers. The discount automatically applies at checkout. 

Intimina Lily Menstrual Cup

Menstrual cups are better for the planet than disposable tampons or pads. This is our top pick. While it’s usually pretty affordable, this sale makes now a good time to try switching if you’ve been curious. The thin construction and flexible design make this cup a great, non-intimidating option for beginners. 

Use code EARTHMONTH to see the discount at checkout. GladRags are highlighted in our guide to the Best Menstrual Products as the top pick for pad users. Washable cloth pads might seem a little strange, but they’re much better for the planet and your wallet compared to disposable versions. 

Tech and Outdoor Gear Deals

Nimble Apollo Wireless Charger

Nimble’s wireless charger is one of our top picks. It’s made with recycled silicone and other post-consumer materials, and the packaging is plastic-free. This mat is compatible with Android phones and iPhones—it even has magnets built-in so iPhone 12 or iPhone 13 devices won’t slide off.

A smart thermostat helps ensure you aren’t wasting energy or money. This one will smartly adjust your home’s temperature—for example, by turning down the heat at night when everyone is sleeping, or running central air at lower speeds when nobody is home (or turning it off). Your energy provider might have a rebate available to help you save even more. Be sure to check out our guide on setting up a Nest thermostat for additional information. 

Amazon-owned Woot is holding a big sale on refurbished Amazon devices. These go on sale brand-new pretty frequently, but buying refurbished is a good way to save some cash while giving gear a second life. Some of the gadgets are older generations, and the warranties are limited to 90 days, but all of them have been tested to ensure they’ll work as intended. Amazon Prime members get free shipping. Read our Best Alexa Speakers guide for more details on some of the products.

Propella 7S Ebike

Get up to $200 off and free shipping until this sale expires on May 1st. The Propella 7-Speed (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is the Best Cheap Ebike in our guide, and we’ve also tried and liked the Propella Mini. 

We have a separate story dedicated to the price drops on some of our favorite ebikes from Rad Power Bikes. The deals run for a few more days. Ebikes are better for the environment than many other transportation methods, but they can be expensive. This is a good chance to save if you’re in the market. 

This is our favorite large thermos in our guide to the Best Reusable Water Bottles. The insulation will keep both hot and cold beverages at their ideal temperatures for longer, and the wide mouth allows for easier cleaning so you won’t be tempted to revert back to disposable plastic vessels.

Klean Kanteen Recycled Steel Bottle

Use coupon code EARTH25 to save 25 percent sitewide at Klean Kanteen. The sale includes this recycled steel bottle, which is one of our favorite upcycled products. The bottle is dishwasher safe and comes in a few bright, fun colors. 

The coupon EARTHDAY22 should automatically apply at checkout. We think there are better reusable water bottles on the market, but S’well is popular, and this sale will save you some cash—about $9 off most bestselling models. They can be awkward to carry, but the eye-catching designs might be a tradeoff worth considering. The deal will apply automatically during checkout.

This recycled polyester bag is nice-looking and versatile. We included it in our list of the Best Upcycled and Recycled Products. The water-repellent coating will keep contents dry, and there are plenty of pockets for organizing all the stuff you’re schlepping.
