Go Green!

Now I am sure many of you are already conscious of your carbon footprint, well the Postal Service is now getting in the game. They are releasing the Go-Green stamps on April 14th. The sheet (pictured below) will feature 16 different stamp designs that will all show ways you can be green.

Another neat thing I found while looking for information on these stamps is that the USPS offers some plantable postcards. They have some seeds worked right into the paper used for the postcard. Which means you can send the postcard...the person you sent it to can put it in the ground and watch wildflowers spring up in that spot. How cool is that??

I tried to find a picture of the postcards, but unfortunately I came up short. is a link to where you can look at all the "green" products. =)


  1. Great stamps, every little thing helps if we conserve. Thanks for sharing. xox Corrine

  2. I thought they were lovely stamps as well. And just think when we recycle paper bits to make more art...we are doing a great thing for the environment!

  3. Wow. This is really cool. I didn't think our post office could do something so progressive. I just ordered stamps and didn't see anything like this.
