Are you doing some redecorating? IKEA is hoping you'll bring your old stuff to them instead of leaving it on the curb. To encourage you to donate instead of ditch, they're offering you an incentive.

Bring your gently used furniture to your nearby IKEA (though check your local store page first—not every location is participating) on April 22 and the Swedish retailer will give you $20 off a purchase of $150 (valid through May 21). Goodwill, which will receive the donations, will be set up in the parking lot at local IKEA stores to assist with unloading donated items and provide tax receipts. The program can accept most living room, dining room, office and bedroom furniture with the exception of mattresses, bedding, baby and children's furniture.

The program is part of IKEA's larger Sustainable Living Your Way event, which is taking place on Saturday, April 22—also known as Earth Day. One day deals include 20% off select bamboo products—a renewable material—and 15% off plants for a literally greener home. They're also running giveaways for $100 gift cards and a SLADDA bike. The first 500 IKEA Family members in the door also get free LED lightbulbs.

As a company that uses 1% of the world's lumber, IKEA has been increasing their sustainability efforts over the past few years, such as finding ways to use more renewable materials like in their boho chic JASSA collection, retiring old pieces for similar ones that use less wood, and promoting various forms of local and small-scale gardening, such as hydroponics.
