The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) is marking Earth Day by distributing 100,000 free condoms packaged in special edition wrappers that feature six endangered species, according to a CBD statement. The group hopes to recruit thousands of volunteers to hand out the condoms in all 50 states on Earth Day, April 22. CBD hopes the effort will raise awareness about the connection between an unsustainable human population growth and increasing extinction of plants and animals around the world.
