where green living, parenthood, and interiors intersect

Sending a message.....

I love that fellow moms come up to me on the playground of my son's school after pick-up with news of their latest "green" discoveries!! I'm not the mom to go to for celebrity gossip or confirmation of the events on the school calendar.....I am the tree-hugger, modern hippie, environmentally-conscious single mom on a mission, sans the smell of patchouli. Today, my friend reported that the US Postal Service offered a "Go Green" stamp booklet. Eek!! Even though most of my bill paying is paperless, I still use the occasional stamp, so I marched off the post office and bought myself several booklets of these statement Forever Stamps. They were released in April, but as they say, better late than never.....

The Go Green stamps illustrate little daily steps every average Joe can take to help rescue our beautiful planet. And they're pretty darn cute too. Here's what the USPS site has to say about them: "Go Green, a pane of 16 stamps, is the Postal Service's social awareness issue for 2011. Award-winning animator, filmmaker, and illustrator Eli Noyes worked with Art Director Derry Noyes on his first stamp project, using a colorful, playful style to convey the message that every American can take simple actions to conserve energy and improve the environment. These Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce rate."

Stock up on the Go Green Forever Stamps, that are always equal to the going rate on a first class stamp, here.
