Protecting the ocean and its ecosystem. 2 “Think Green” stamps released by Iceland Post

May 5th, 2016 is glad to inform our readers that Iceland Post issued a new stamp, based on the theme of Ecology of Europe.

On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of Europa Stamps, Iceland Post issued two new stamp tracing the importance of pollution free environment.

Hlynur Ólafsson designed the Icelandic stamp which is dedicated to the protection of the ocean. A relatively untouched nature and unpolluted environment is a key to human health, welfare and quality of life, as well as for strengthening social and economic development worldwide.

The objective of green thinking is the protection of ecosystems, including reducing unsustainable exploitation of natural resources. Unpolluted ocean and water constitute one of Iceland’s most important concerns. The government has long placed great emphasis on international action to prevent marine pollution and other harm to the marine environment.

Green information technology is also coming to the fore. Among the factors that can guarantee sound environmental awareness are outdoor activities, cycling and the recycling of paper and plastic products. It is important that adults show good example to children and young people as regards green thinking and environmental protection.
