Earth Day Flash Sale and Planet Protection Tips!

Happy Earth Day from MHQ! To celebrate the day, we’re offering 22 percent off on all Earth Mystery Munzees for Earth Day, starting today at 15:00 MHQ time and lasting until 15:00 MHQ time tomorrow. You can stop by the Freeze Tag Online Store to shop this sale, and check out our Elemental Mystery Help Guide article for more information about Earth Mystery Munzees.

Last year, we had the pleasure of working with players to help plant 10,000 trees through the Earth Day Network‘s Canopy Project thanks to our Earth Day fundraiser! Players helped raise the money to accomplish this awesome feat through the sale of Earth Day Evolution Munzees and Earth Day personal tags. It was our pleasure to work with players to assist the goals of the Canopy Project, an organization that focuses on strengthening communities through tree planting.

With so many exciting projects in the works, we unfortunately didn’t have the time to plan any Earth Day fundraisers this year. However, we would still like to take the chance to share simple everyday ways you can improve and preserve our wonderful planet. Munzee is a real world scavenger hunt, and Freeze Tag places great value on preserving the outdoors and protecting the Earth. We love hearing about how eco-friendly so many of our players are, and we hope the following tips can help raise awareness about how to care for our planet!

20 Tips for Protecting the Planet: 

1. Follow in the footsteps of our Worldwide Events Manager Louise and bike more, drive less!

2. Cut down on meat and animal product intake. This doesn’t mean going vegetarian or vegan, just reducing the amount of animal products you consume. Try to have a weekly “vegetarian day” to dramatically reduce the amount of natural resources used to produce meat.

3. Reduce, reuse, recycle! This mantra should be a lifestyle. Be wary of the amount of waste you accumulate.

4. Plant a tree! This is a simple yet impactful way to improve the planet.

5. Purchase second hand items to reduce packing materials while also saving your money.

6. Be mindful of the products you use. Choose non-toxic chemicals so that you aren’t polluting the waterways.

7. Don’t waste paper products. Be conscious of how many tissues or napkins you take and how much paper towel and toilet paper you use. Only select as much as you need. Additionally, try to keep your business paperless and don’t waste notepads. Remember to recycle paper products.

8. Recycle your newspapers and junk mail. Rather than throw away unwanted or used paper items, such as newspapers and junkman, recycle them. You can also look into cancelling unwanted newspaper services and junk mail subscriptions.

9. Invest in energy efficient lightbulbs to cut down on greenhouse emissions, and be mindful of how many lights you leave on.

10. Be sensible about how you do your laundry. Consider using a clothesline to save power while drying your clothes. (This will also help them last longer!) Wait until your laundry is full to wash. Avoid doing half loads of laundry, and consider switching to a warm cycle rather than hot.

11. Be a smart shopper! Carry reusable bags wherever you go. Just say no to plastic.

12. Shower more, bathe less. Baths can be relaxing, but try to cut down on time spent in the tub since baths use approximately twice as much water as showers.

13. Conserve your water usage. The less water you use, the less wastewater will end up in the ocean.

14. Cut down on shower time. As little as two minutes of reduced shower time can make an enormous difference in water conservation.

15. Buy local produce when you are able to in order to cutdown on pollution that occurs when transporting goods long distance.

16. Get involved in community cleanups. Volunteer work is invaluable to Earth conservation.

17. Save your energy use (and cut down on your energy bill) by adjusting the temperature in your home and using a timer system for when you are out.

18. Use a travel mug for your daily beverage. This is an easy way to cut down on waste every day.

19. Pay your bills online to reduce the amount of paper waste you acquire. You can also cancel your paper bank statements and work on staying digital.

20. Educate those around you in a friendly manner. Help them understand why it’s important to value natural resources and how they can do so.

Thanks to National Ocean Service and 50 Ways to Help for helping us compile these important tips!

Happy Eath Day, and Munzee on!

Earth Day Fundraiser Update!

We want to take a moment to thank everyone for helping make our Earth Day fundraiser another great example of the good our players can do! Through the sales of Earth Day Evolution Munzees and Earth Day personal tags we’ve proudly helped plant 10,000 trees through the Earth Day Network‘s Canopy Project!

The Canopy Project focuses to strengthen communities through tree planting. Using agroforestry, sapling distribution and tree care training, Earth Day Network empowers organizations and citizens to conserve, repair, and restore tree cover to their lands. Freeze Tag’s donation is part of the Earth Day Network’s goal of planting 7.8 billion trees — one tree for every person on earth — in honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day in 2020. According to the Earth Day Network, trees reverse the impacts of land degradation and provide food, energy and income, helping communities achieve long-term economic and environmental sustainability.

As a company focused on geolocation gaming, preserving the outdoors is extremely important to us. The work the Earth Day Network does to protect and preserve the environment is unmatched. We’re proud of the response of our players across the world who have once again shown their commitment to worthy causes.

Remember that if you deployed your Earth Day Evolution Seed Munzees when they first went on sale, those will have evolved to their final Tree forms by now so get out and cap others’ Tree Evos! Also keep in mind that this special will end at 23:59 MHQ time on May 13th, and all deploys will be archived regardless of the stage they have reached.

We hope you’ve enjoyed the Earth Day fundraiser specials and thank you once again! Go green and Munzee on!

Earth Day Charity Special Update

Howdy!

First off, we would like to thank you for your support of our Earth Day Charity Special. We love seeing players interact and help each other for deployments and captures, and it’s even better when it’s for a good cause.

Earth Day Evolutions will leave the Freeze Tag Online Store on Monday, April 9th at 10:00 MHQ time. This is to ensure that, if deployed immediately, they will be fully evolved by the time they leave the map so you get the most out of them. So if you haven’t purchased any Earth Day Evolutions yet, you still have time! Don’t forget there are badges for capping AND deploying these specials!

Also, keep an eye on the blog next week for more information about what charity we will be donating to.

Thanks again for being such a great community!

Munzee on!

Earth Day Charity Fundraiser Special!

April 22nd is Earth Day, and we’re getting in on the celebration a little early with our newest charity special fundraiser! These “colorful” specials will help you temporarily grow the Munzee map and help make the real world a greener, healthier place! A portion of the funds raised from this campaign will be donated to an Earth Day charity to be announced at a later date.

Beginning now (10:00 MHQ Time on Thursday, March 29th), virtual Earth Day Evolution Munzees are available for purchase for $1/each (limit 50 per account) in the Freeze Tag Online Store. These Evolution Munzees have three stages: Seed, Seedling, and Tree.

We want to see these trees in full bloom by Earth Day, so these will work a little different than usual Evos. Unlike other Evolution Munzees, the Seed and Seedling stages will evolve after 12 days. So if you deploy your Earth Day Evolution Munzee TODAY it will be fully evolved in time for Earth Day on April 22nd.

The points for the Earth Day Evolution Munzees are as follows:

  • Deploy: 25
  • Capture: 15, 20, and 25 respectively based on evolution stage
  • CapOn: 10, 15, and 20 respectively based on evolution stage

These munzees have a 300ft capture radius and are blastable. They are affected by all other types and can be placed 50ft from other players’ munzees and 150ft from your own munzees.

There are six badges that can be earned for this special:

  • Green Gardner – Deploy 1 Earth Day Evolution Munzee
  • Evergreen Artist – Deploy 5 Earth Day Evolution Munzees
  • Colorful Capture: Seed – Capture 1 Earth Day Evolution Seed Munzee
  • Colorful Capture: Seedling – Capture 1 Earth Day Evolution Seedling Munzee
  • Colorful Capture: Tree – Capture 1 Earth Day Evolution Tree Munzee
  • Colorful Capping! – Capture at least 1 of each Earth Day Evolution Munzee Stage

This special will end at 23:59 MHQ time on May 13th, and all deploys will be archived regardless of the stage they have reached.


We also have a limited number of Earth Day Charity Special Personal Munzees available.

These Personals are metal dog tags and are priced at $10/each.


In connection with the Go Green events happening all throughout the month, we also wanted to add another activity to join in the fun. To coincide with the “colorful” crayon designs of these icons and badges, we’re releasing PDF coloring book pages of the designs. We want to see your artistic interpretation so send pictures of your finished work to iloveyou@munzee.com and we’ll periodically share some of our favorites. Bring copies to your Go Green events and showcase how colorful your group of players is!

You can download the PDFs of the pages HERE, HERE, and HERE!

We hope you enjoy this special!

Munzee on and Go Green!

Go Green Munzee Events!

The time has come to reveal the plans for the next lot of Munzee Event Packages! We are inviting you to host Go Green Munzee Events all over the world. Would only be right to kick off these events with the King of Green, St Patrick himself, on Saturday 17th March and run them all the way through Easter and on to Earth Day on Sunday 22nd April.

We would love to see Munzee events encouraging green initiatives such as getting outside, picking up litter and wearing green. In fact, there will be a badge for the winner of the Go Green Competition at each Munzee event during this period. The host needs to send a photo and the player name to me after the event of the attendee that wears the most green clothing.

The packages for these Go Green Events are as follows:
The Seeds Package – Basic event + no proximity = $30
The Sapling Package
– The Seeds Package + 5 Mystery virtuals = $35
The Tree Package
– The Sapling Package + Badge & Icon = $135
The Forest Package
– The Tree Package + Eventzee = $185

Add an Emerald for attendees to any Go Green event for $20

First step is to get your events on the calendar here and let me know your order once your event has been published.

I look forward to working with you and seeing you all Go Green!

Thank you and Munzee On!
