USPS Goes Green!



Not only are the USPS going Green, they're asking us to do it too. The USPS delivers around 500 million Priority and Express packages per year. That's a lot of trees, but these are made from 100% recycled material according to Postal Service spokeswoman Joanne Veto.

In the Bloomberg News May. 30, 2007 The U.S. Postal Service is requiring vendors to use environmentally friendly materials to create envelopes and packages that carry 500 million Priority and Express mail shipments annually. Packaging-products suppliers including Bell Inc. must use materials that can be recycled and won't harm the environment, Postmaster General John Potter said in an interview. The changes apply to 10 direct suppliers and 200 makers of products such as glue, ink and paper."We wanted to get to the point where everything was recyclable, where it wasn't going to cause any damage to the ozone layer," Potter said. He is scheduled to discuss the changes at a Washington press conference today.

How about, whenever we request something shipped to us, we start asking the question...."do you use recycled materials in your packaging?"

It's up to us to demand change or else we'll never see it. The world revolves on supply and demand. If we demand it, they'll supply it!
