Rachel Wheeler Archive
In its bid to become an economically-friendly organization, the United States Postal Service (USPS) has announced details surrounding the opening of a new green newsroom.

Launched to coincide with the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, the newsroom contains information on the service's fleet of electric vehicles and products.

In addition, visitors to the online service will be able to find out about all the efforts that the post office is taking to help reduce its carbon footprint, as well as news, events and facts relating to USPS and its environmental policy.

"Our history of environmental efforts goes back more than 100 years and Earth Day is a perfect opportunity to tell Americans about the postal service's planet-friendly initiatives," vice president of sustainability Sam Pulcrano said.

Visitors to the site may also want to take advantage of other online tools, such as the address verification service.

USPS has won numerous accolades for its commitment to helping the environment, including being named Climate Action Champion and picking up the Postal Technology International Environmental Achievement of the Year.
