Four months after the Fukushima power plant disaster, Japan is asking volunteers to grow sunflowers to help decontaminate radioactive soil.
The seeds of sunflowers grown this year will be sent to areas affected by the disaster. They will be planted next year to help get rid of the radioactive waste.
Young entrepreneurs and civil servants in Fukushima launched the campaign as a symbol of hope and restoration. So far almost 10,000 packets of sunflower seeds have been sold.
