U.S. Postal Service employees are instantly recognizable in their distinctive blue uniforms. But did you know the Postal Service is also earning distinction as one of the greenest "companies" in the country?

In fact, the USPS has been a green innovator since 1899 when it tested it its first electric mail delivery vehicle. That's right - 1899! In addition, the Postal Service is the only mailing and shipping company in the entire country to be Cradle to Cradle™ certified for its environmentally friendly shipping supplies.

Come hear Sam Pulcrano, Postal Service Vice President for Sustainability, talk about what the Postal Service is doing to leave a greener footprint across America, and how the agency is telling its green story, including shouting it from a certain green rooftop in New York City. You'll walk away having learned best practices for "greening" your organization.
