World Contraception Day PSA tells the awful history of not getting pregnant   #WCD2014

Before the latex condoms, the hormonal birth control pill, and other safe and effective forms of contraception became legal and commonplace in the 20th century, women relied on many folk remedies to prevent pregnancy. Many of these were actual herbal abortifacients, but some others were pure superstition.

This video by Engender Health, for World Contraception Day, is an amusing review of some of the stranger attempts at birth control through the ages. But it ends with a very serious message:

Condoms ask humans to wrap up for endangered species

The Center for Biological Diversity: Condoms ask humans to wrap up for endangered species.

The Center for Biological Diversity explains how condoms can save wildlife:

The Earth’s population now tops 7 billion people. The rapid growth of our human population is pushing other species off the planet in what most scientists are calling the sixth mass extinction crisis. Yet this population explosion is too often ignored by the public, the media and even the environmental movement, while it continues to drive all the major environmental problems that plague our planet — including climate change, habitat loss, ocean acidification and resource depletion.

The Center has been distributing Endangered Species Condoms since 2009, using the cute, rhyming slogans and cool illustrations from Roger Pete to remind people at concerts, bars, universities, spiritual group meetings, farmers’ markets and local events around the United States.

While I doubt the condoms themselves get used much, the artwork makes a fine collector’s item. And for a longterm awareness campaign, having people hold on to the “literature” (and show it to their friends) is a pretty great result.

See the rest of the 2014 collection below. To learn more about the project, visit their campaign site.

Miss Representation #NotBuyingIt app

#NotBuyingIt is the hashtag used by the social media feeds for Miss Representation (both the film and the movement) to call out sexism in advertising and media. And now, it’s an App as well.

Available for iPhone, it allows users to “create, join and win campaigns against sexism in the media.”

Branding a time-bound campaign, Forest & Bird did it.

It’s not new but it is not often used: branding for a time-bound campaign. The kind of branding used for temporary purpose. Forest & Bird did it recently for their Love Nature: Vote 2014 campaign. New Zealand’s largest independent conservation organisation wanted nature back on the political agenda. The future…
