Up for Buy it Now or Best Offer (make an offer!), an original, ultra rare vintage button / pin / pinback, for the first ever Earth Day, April 22, 1970, in Madison, WI. Reads "HELP STOP POLLUTION APRIL 22" and has a symbol in the middle. On back, the original owner wrote in pen "4-22-70" and "4-22-1970." The collection comes from an individual based out of Madison, Wisconsin, and it was Wisconsin's Senator, Gaylord Nelson who was in large part, behind the founding of Earth Day. He was inspired by the activism of students, upset about the damage done to the Environment, and recruited the most talented at organizing, to help organize and mobilize the first Earth Day. Button measures about 2" diameter. Clean, sharp, vivid colors and graphics, and minimal age/use related wear. I have been unable to find another.

From the estate of an individual who was involved in the civil rights / social justice movements of the 1960s, 1970s, and beyond! He collected all kinds of political, presidential, local/state/national buttons, stickers, ephemera going back to Eisenhower. The original owner/collector frequently marked years, dates, and other information on the backs of items collected. If you'd like more information for the sake of provenance, please ask! Out of respect, I don't want to identify the individual on ! I have more posters and items from this estate which will be listed soon, if they are not already!
