We’re excited that Earth Day is coming up this Friday, April 22! Since we are all about being green here at Schroll Cabinets, we thought we’d discuss nothing but going green in honor of Earth Day on our blog this week. We’ve talked a lot about going green over the past several months, including the items and ideas to incorporate into a green kitchen, how to waste less food, and recycling. However, the beginning steps to going green may be a lot easier than the ones we’ve listed before, thanks to the United States Postal Service.
The United States Postal Service has created a new series of “Go Green” stamps that illustrate a variety of ways we can go green with small daily decisions. Each stamp in the series features just one thing we can do to not only help our environment, but also encourage better health and offer suggestions of ways to cut energy costs, according to the blog Beyond the Perf. The illustrations of the “Go Green” stamp series include activities such as composting, car pooling, turning off the lights, buying local produce, fixing water leaks, recycling, using energy efficient light bulbs, and air-drying the laundry instead of using a dyer, just to name a few.
William Gicker, Creative Director of Stamp Development, said “We could have shown big concepts or broad-stroke initiatives, like wind power or solar power, but we wanted to send the message that each one of us can take small, everyday steps to make our world a greener place.”
We think it’s pretty cool that more people and organizations are seeing the need to go green!
