“Go Green” Forever Stamps

The U.S. Postal Service recently unveiled its new line of “Go Green” Forever stamps that show simple actions anyone can take to improve the environment. The 16 stamps feature people of all ages carrying out low-cost or free actions that have an immediate effect on the environment, from adjusting the thermostat and using public transportation to composting and recycling. Designed by San Francisco artist Eli Noyes, the “Go Green” stamps are the Postal Service’s social awareness issue for 2011. The stamps are also made from materials that are biodegradable and recyclable. 
Like other Forever stamps, the new stamps will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce rate. “Go Green” stamps can be ordered online at
