Not that saving the planet doesn't have intrinsic reward (our grandchildren's grandchildren and whatnot), but wouldn't it be nice if someone gave you coupons and discounts for greening up your life, too?

Recyclebank does just that. You recycle, shorten your shower by two minutes, stop buying bottled water, and earn points you can cash in for coupons, discount codes and gift cards for popular stores and brands.

Pretty cool, huh?
