Lowe's is doing their part to make your yard a little greener this Earth Day.

The home improvement chain is giving away 500,000 free tree saplings on Thursday, April 22 to honor the eco-friendly holiday and encourage customers to put their green thumbs to use.

Gardening enthusiasts and novices alike can reserve a Garden-to-Go kit from their local Lowe's while supplies last, by entering their info on the SpringFest 2021 page. No purchase is necessary for the freebie.

The final giveaway of the month takes place next Thursday, featuring a butterfly garden kit. April's SpringFest lineup also consists of online and in-store demos, including lawn maintenance with Scotts and paint demos with Sherwin-Williams.

"Over the past year, our homes have transformed and supported us in more ways than we could have imagined," said Marisa Thalberg, Lowe's executive vice president, chief brand and marketing officer in a statement.

"This spring, home can evolve, yet again, to be a creative outlet and the ultimate destination," Thalberg added. "Through SpringFest and our invitation to take a Hometrip, we're making the best of spring available so our customers can transport themselves without ever leaving the sanctuary of home."

Lowe's is also offering vacations from the comfort of home with their Hometrip experiences. Families still in quarantine can enjoy a Colorado-style campout in their backyard or a Palm Springs-style spa on their patio.

The company teamed up for a national survey of 2,000 respondents with Morning Consult, which found that 85 percent now consider their home their sanctuary. And 40 percent have been inspired to bring their vacation-esque experiences home.
