Environmental Group to Distribute Condoms for Valentine’s Day
Tucson-based environmental group Center for Biological Diversity will be distributing 100,000 condoms starting Valentine’s Day to help increase awareness of the impact of human overpopulation over endangered species.
The slogans that can be seen in six different original artwork packages include: “Wrap with care, save the polar bear”, “Wear a jimmy hat, save the big cat” (jaguar), “Hump smarter, save the snail darter”, “Cover your tweedle, save the burying beetle”, “Use a stopper, save the hopper” and “Wear a condom now, save the spotted owl”.
It will be distributed by about 3,000 volunteers in bars, concerts, parties, schools, supermarkets, and other public places.
The campaign is partnered with a website called Endangered Species Condom. It has explanations regarding the overpopulation. It also provides a venue where you can donate, signup to be a volunteer distributor or enter a raffle where you can win lifetime supply of condoms (5 winners).
The current human population is at 6.8 billion, which is project to reach 9 billion by 2050.
