On Tuesday, April 22 (yes, Earth Day), recycled clothing retailers Well Suited will team up with the Center for Biological Diversity, a Tucson-based nonprofit that advocates for endangered animals, to hand out free Endangered Species Condoms to its customers. Obviously.
Endangered Species Condoms is a special line of contraceptives that was launched by the Center for Biological Diversity in 2009 to promote awareness of human population growth and its negative effect on the species extinction crisis (in case you lost count, the Earth's population is now more than 7 billion people).
We don't know about you, but that's exactly the kind of stuff we're thinking about before getting it on.

The eco-friendly condoms come in wildlife-themed packaging designed by artist Roger Peet and feature endangered animals such as polar bears, dwarf seahorses, panthers, leatherback sea turtles, hellbenders, and snowy plovers. Awww.
The condoms will be handed out at all Well Suited locations free of purchase with one condom per person while supplies last. Well Suited locations can be found at Lincoln Village in Scottsdale, Town & Country in Phoenix, and Desert Village at Pinnacle Peak.
