One last cool news item for celebrating Mother Earth :

Students at Thurgood Marshall Academy, as well as Savoy Elementary School got excited about the new line of stamps that USPS revealed – and that doesn’t happen often. These stamps aren’t your average American flag or spring flower stamps: these new Forever stamps are Go Green stamps that offer suggestions for reducing your environmental footprint. With advice like “ride a bike” and “adjust the thermostat,” these stamps are a wonderful reminder that “going green” can be pretty simple.
The First date of Issue dedication took place at these two schools for the effort the students at the two schools took working hard to make their schools more sustainable plus helped build and plant the largest green garden in the Washington, DC, public school system. They also worked hard to make it grow and be plentiful. 

Thanks to USPS, the teachers at Thurgood Marshall and Savoy Elementary, and all the students that take the stamps suggestions to heart, proving that without a young generation that cares about having a green school, we can’t hope for other generations to care about having green homes or green workplaces.



  1. Just wanted to stop by and wish you a Happy Easter


  2. You know, I'm all for Earth Day & being eco-friendly, but it would be a whole helluva lot easier to do it if the eco stuff wasn't 5 times more expensive than the regular items. Just sayin.

  7. Free Starbucks coffee!!! Drats, we don't have Starbucks here in Tasmania, I'll have to buy a $300 plane ticket to go to the Big North Island to save a few lousy bucks on coffee....
