Chipotle: Free Burrito On Earth Day with purchase of Lunch Bag

by

Chipotle Lunch Bag

From now until April 14, burrito lovers can purchase for $18.00 a Chipotle lunch bag, made with “upcycled” outdoor advertisement materials to get an  eco-friendly card redeemable for a FREE burrito on Earth Day (April 22nd) at Chipotle.

The bags are made from Chipotle billboards given a second life by transforming would-be waste into a one-of-a-kind product using less energy than traditional recycling methods. Plus, for every 20,000 bags made from retired Chipotle signage, landfills are spared some 78,000 square feet of billboard vinyl — enough material to cover 2.7 Olympic swimming pools!

Designed exclusively for Chipotle by Loomstate, a pioneer of sustainable apparel, and made in Denver by Billboard Ecology Partners, the lunch bags are available exclusively through Chipotle’s online store. The bag design features a classic top-roll adjustable strap closure, reinforced side seams and handle, and a convenient extra-large back pocket. The black back and front panels of the bags are the reverse side of the billboards while the side panels showcase unique front-facing billboard designs that differ by bag, meaning that each is truly one of a kind.

Lunch bag supplies are limited and bags must be purchased between no later than Saturday, April 14, 2012, to receive it in time for Earth Day. Each lunch bag purchased through April 14, 2012 will include a card containing a barcode, which you must present to redeem your free Chipotle menu item. Each customer is limited to one free burrito, bowl, salad or tacos per barcode presented.

All proceeds from each $18 purchase benefit the Chipotle Cultivate Foundation, providing funding to support sustainable agriculture, family farming, and culinary education.

Oh man, I missed this. I love burritos. I just posted burrito pizza recipe on my own site but it’s not professional or anything. Ciao!
