May 17, 2012, Bellevue, Wash. – Coinstar,
Inc. has released its first corporate social responsibility (CSR) report, "Reimagining Responsibility."  The report
highlights the company's engagement and sustainability efforts and
shares future commitments to advancing the long-term well-being of
Coinstar, its employees, the environment and the communities it serves.

The report highlights Coinstar's initiatives as
part of its commitment to building a culture of corporate responsibility
and sustainability. Coinstar has set goals to reduce the company's
carbon footprint, increase charitable giving and boost employee
volunteerism. In 2011 Coinstar achieved a four per cent absolute
reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to the 2010 baseline,
even in the midst of rapid growth. Operational greenhouse gas emissions
decreased by 15 per cent, normalized by number of kiosks deployed.

The
company's new ventures team considers how new products could better
address the changing needs of consumers and society. Among them,
ecoATM, a strategic investment, keeps toxic electronic components out of
landfills and unlocks remaining value in electronic devices; and Gizmo
provides deals on refurbished and tested electronics, offering an
environmentally friendly solution for previously owned electronics.
