Now how cool is this!?
When we stopped by the good ol’ USPS office to send our toy & design packages out to ya lovely folks last week, we were pleasantly surprised by the new stamps that we saw at the counter: Go Green Forever ECO Postage Stamps of USPS!!! Needlessly to say, we immediately bought a bunch to support and spread the idea and awareness of GO GREEN to save our environment :)
Released in late 2011, USPS came up with 16 classically illustrated and well designed GO GREEN stamps that each carries an unique green message for the general public, to remind us of the everyday things we need to do to to make a difference and conserve our natural resources. Like us, you may find that you’ve already meet many of the green suggestion, tho you might be able to adopt a new one too. Not to mention our young philatelists can also learn about environmental issues as we educate them with these lovely stamps.
So let’s take a look at the 16 stamps with with of their unique messages, shall we? Bring out ur pencil, it’s a check-list that we hope you will be able to check most, if not all, off eventually in the future, and hopefully soon to make this a greener world! :)
