The United States Postal Service has launched their 2011 Social Awareness campaign and it's a campaign that you've probably never heard of. It's about... wait for it...

Going GREEN!

The USPS wants you to be aware that going green is the right thing to do. It's a good thing too, because I never would have known that the green movement is out there. I mean with Government mandating new auto regulations, light bulbs, grocery bags, it's almost like this whole green thing has been a secret.

Here is the press release from the USPS:

This sheet of stamps is part of the Postal Service's long-term commitment to raising awareness of important social issues...one letter at a time.

The Go Green commemorative stamps demonstrate easy low- and no-cost ways to help the environment

So we are supposed to buy stamps and send mail to remember the environment? You can read more about their campaign online at their website.

I've got a better idea. Since the USPS is bleeding cash anyway, let's shut it down.

Why?

Well, if every American would stop sending mail (paper products) and do everything online, think of all the trees we could save. It would also cut down on carbon because there would be less mail trucks on the roads. It's not like we really need the post office. You can pay bills online and send e-cards. Ordering gifts? Send packages UPS or FedEx!

Now that's going green!
