Post Office Goes Green

by Kendall Call

There are many ways students can help make their world and community a better place. The ecosystem is an important part of life.

Here are some ways teens can help:

  • Adjust the thermostat. Every degree you lower your thermostat in cold weather, or raise it during hot weather, can lower your energy bill by 3% and conserve valuable natural resources.
  • Use public transportation. Taking the bus, train or carpooling vs. driving your own car saves gas money and reduces pollution.
  • Plant trees. Besides producing oxygen and removing carbon dioxide and containments from the air, trees and other plants provide a habitat for birds and other wildlife.

The United States Postal Service is doing its part to “Go Green” by providing eco-friendly mailing materials and stamps to our customers. As part of their “Go Green” commitment, they’ve designed a series of 16 Go Green stamps, showing what each of us can do to promote the health of our environment.
