This Katy Perry CD packaging can actually be good for the environment.
The idea was to plant flower seeds in your garden while listening to Katy’s Prism album. For deluxe editions of her 2013 album, Prism, Katy Perry included packets of flower seeds in A prism seed paper. How cool is this idea? It’s as if the flowers would slowly bloom through Katy’s music.
But Australia put a firm stop to the importing of inner and outer beauty when they deemed Prism a biosecurity concern since the seed paper was coming from outside the country and could possibly spread weeds or diseases that weren’t already in Australia. Copies of Prism were basically treated as the Outbreak monkey to Australia’s Department of Agriculture and all those flowers were dead to rights before they even had a chance to bloom.
It’s too bad that the seed paper used for the album doesn’t have multi-country importation approval. Then the album could be shipped without any trouble.
