USPS revamp green website

USPS has just amped up its cyber presence. Today the agency unveiled a slick new version of its green website, First launched in 2008, the improved version is an attention-getter for people who care about the environment.

No tickets are needed for the cyber tour, which transports visitors to forests where 1.7m new trees are planted each day to replace what’s harvested. There’s a place for children to learn how to create green family trees and great tips anyone can use to make the home environment more renewable.

Take a visual stroll through the Postal Service’s greenest hits. Get 100% free, 100% recyclable Priority Mail and Express Mail packaging supplies delivered directly to your home or office at no charge. The Postal Service is the only mailing and shipping company in America to be Cradle to Cradle(TM) certified for the environmental and health standards of its packaging. Postal Service packaging supplies are so green, the half billion pieces provided to customers last year prevented more than 15,000 tons of carbon emissions. That’s equal to the amount from 2,747 average vehicles driving on the road for a year.

In October 2009, the Postal Service became the first federal agency to report its carbon emissions. Find out more about the Postal Service’s carbon footprint at Learn how to calculate savings and help the environment by mailing and shipping from the online Post Office that is always open.

“Friends of the environment will find smart tools on to measure their carbon emissions and create individual conservation plans,” said Sam Pulcrano, vice president of Sustainability. “The Skip the Trip calculator shows how to save money, fuel and energy by using our easy online services. It’s another way the Postal Service helps customers make greener choices about their mail.”

The Postal Service has made recycling a priority. The agency recycled 274,000 tons of paper, plastics and other waste in 2008, enough to fill up the Empire State Building one and a half times. On everyone can recycle. From small electronics and ink jet cartridges through the mail, to larger items at any of 100,000 recycling centers around the country, the Postal Service makes it easy to go green.
