The Postal Service will celebrate Earth Day on Monday, April 22.

Under the Delivering for America plan, the organization is taking steps to enhance sustainability throughout its network and day-to-day operations.

This includes establishing broad goals earlier this year to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, divert waste from landfills, increase procurement of renewable energy and boost recycling by 2030.

Employees can support these efforts by following the proper procedures for recycling paper and disposing of used batteries, light bulbs and other items, and reducing energy and water consumption and waste.

The Sustainability page has more information, including a brochure that can be downloaded, while the Environmental Affairs and Corporate Sustainability Blue page has details about the organization’s individual programs and initiatives.
