The United States Postal Service is striving to make more eco-friendly decisions to help customers. USPS has everything from eco-friendly products and services, to ideas for recycling and ways to help marketeers create greener advertising. Now with their recent innovations, almost anything that can be done in the post office can be done online. Customers can now order packaging and shipping materials online through their green site, which charges to shipping. Nearly half a billion Priority Mail and Express Mail packages and envelopes now meet higher environmental standards, along with nearly 15,000 metric tons of carbon equivalent emissions eliminated every year. Along with that the postal service also recycles more than one million tons of paper, plastic and other materials a year. The post office buildings are also being upgraded so that they can reduce energy by as much as 30 percent by 2015.
