In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22, 2020, the United States Postal Service® will honor the day with a commemorative Forever® stamp. The stamp was released on April 18, 2020.

USPS Earth Day

The first Earth Day took place in 1970 and was founded by Gaylord Nelson, who at the time was a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin. It gave a voice to the growing concern of the planet. In 1990, Earth Day went global and was a factor in the creation of the 1992 United Nations Earth Summit. Today, Earth Day is a global movement aimed to focus attention on the environment. 

The Postal Service’s success of its National Recycling Operation has positioned the USPS® as a leader in the federal sector when it comes to diverting waste from landfills. The USPS continues to champion efforts to conserve water and energy while following pollution prevention best practices and complying with environmental regulations.
