Earth Day Seed Packet

Description
The first “Earth Day” was established by environmental activists in 1970 to awaken the country and its lawmakers to the need for protecting our environment and conserving our natural resources. Response to the event was overwhelming as thousands of concerned citizens participated in community activities across the nation to show their support for the movement.
This Earthday seed packet was distributed in 2010 by movie director and environmentalist James Cameron’s “Avatar” Home Tree Initiative in a worldwide effort to plant one million trees.
