Art for the Earth Playing Cards, published in 1995 by Friends of the Earth and Andrew Jones Art, is a notable deck for many reasons: it is a transformation deck with a predominantly rainforest theme and each card in it was designed by a different artist.  Royalties from sales of the deck go to Friends of the Earth, and are used in their efforts to "protect and sustain the world's fast disappearing tropical rainforests."  Also of note is the fact that the deck is believed to be the first deck in the world to be printed on 100% recycled card.
